The students of Whittemore voted for book characters for president. Greg Heffley (a.k.a.The Wimpy Kid) won the election over Elephant and Piggie. To celebrate this victory, 2 copies of the new Wimpy Kid book Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Double Down were purchased for the library. In order to be one of the first to check this book out from the library, students had to convince me that they were the biggest fans of The Wimpy Kid. Students wrote persuasive essays and letters to me to accomplish this. We had many excellent entries, and the two winners were Ashley O. from Mrs. Maksymiak’s class and Jeffry G. from Mrs. Foley’s class.
Thank you to all who participated!
