The library hosts two clubs on club days, Library Guild and Debate Club. In addition, for the Spring Book Fair, we "hire" the Book Fair Student Crew.
The Library Guild is open to 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. Their mission is to promote reading at Pence. These are their tasks:
Debate Club is open to 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. We use the debate pages in Scholastic's UPFRONT magazine to explore pros and cons of current topics. Students have the opportunity to discuss and present their positions.
Turner Ashby H.S. has an accomplished Debate Team and we hope to include those members as guest presenters at some point in the school year.
This year we will meet during 7th period in the library from 1:45-2:30.
Beginning after Winter Break, listen for announcements that applications are available and being accepted for Student Crew. We ONLY "hire" for the Spring Book Fair.
Our Student Crew is essential to the success of the Book Fair!
We often use experienced crew members on an "as needed" basis for the Fall and the BOGO Book Fairs.
