Memorial MCBA Voting Results

Over 700 Massachusetts Children's Book Award Nomination books were enjoyed and read
 by 4th and 5th grade Memorial School students and staff.  This year Mrs. Weldon along 
with Mrs. Floyd and Mrs. Magliozzi created a Google Voting Form and over 90 students 
and staff were able to vote for their favorite.  In order to vote for your favorite book, students
 needed to read at least 5 of the 25 nominated books.
