Over 35 students and staff showed up for the New Moon Book Club held on Thursday in the Library Media Center. Participants were surprised to see both Edward and Jacob standing by the table which held Bella’s bright pink birthday cake and presents wrapped in silver paper (as described in the book). Pink and white balloons were strewn around the room, adding to the festive atmosphere. Refreshments also included Skybar candy wrapped in images of the Twilight characters, and mini blueberry muffins baked by Monique for the occasion. Special guests attending were Ms. Diotte, the new Library Teacher from FHS, along with three freshman who came back for this event.
After cake and time to socialize, participants were asked to choose between Team Edward and Team Jacob by standing by our guests. Some chose to be neutral, and sat on the floor between the two groups. Let the photos show that Team Jacob had more members!
A trivia contest followed: Mrs. Botelho had created 60 questions after rereading the book, which Ms. Santos used to create an interactive game on the Smartboard in which the contestants used clickers (handheld remotes) to answer the multiple choice questions. Winners received t-shirts, posters, and magnets. Many students had brought their New Moon books and were prepared to discuss it, but we ran out of time! One suggestion was to meet after the movie comes out to compare and contrast the book with the movie.
The final door prize was the New Moon CD.
