5th graders across the District participated in our first ever District 25 Book Trailer Festival by creating a trailer for a book they had read and wanted to recommend. Student's worked hard to create a trailer that made the viewer want to read their book! Each 5th grade class then viewed and rated the trailers from another class in the District until we had the three trailers from each 5th grade class with the top votes. From those trailer's each school created a committee to choose one "finalist" from each 5th grade class to send to a District committee. A District committee viewed each of these "finalists" (27 video trailers) and chose their top 3 District winners. At Patton we were thrilled and proud that Megan from Mrs. Anderle's class won top honors for her trailer on the book Slob by Ellen Potter. View her trailer here and then watch all the other trailers on ourBook Trailer Festival website, a great way to find the next book to read this summer!
