    Take the Bulldog Challenge !  Read 2 or more books and use evidence from those books to create a project to answer the question:  "How can you build a better world?".  If you need some suggestions, you can read a book from the RI Middle School Book Award list or look at the Bulldog Challenge for more suggestions.  Bring in your projects to the library in September, and get an outdoor lunch pass and a chance to win one of our raffle prizes.  If we meet our participation goals, Principal Fusco will get a pie in the face!
