Teens had fun making edible fruit bouquets to take home.

There were so many imaginative fruit displays made. It was a great opportunity to show their creativity.

Promposal by Rhonda Helms

The book Promposal by Rhonda Helms was a great book that I would definitely recommend to my friends.  Of course, I had some positive and negative feedback.

The only problem I had with the book is that I felt the title and cover page was too cheesy.  I mean, I know there’s nothing anyone but the author can do about it.  But if I wanted to read a book, I would like it to have a good title.  Something that would grab my attention.  Honestly, if I saw the book, I would probably ignore it.

But you can’t judge a book by its cover.  I had a great time reading it.  I feel like the problems that main characters Camilla and Joshua face in this book would be faced by many teens.  Especially since the main topics involve prom and crushes.

The characters were great, detail in the book was amazing, and I love how it shows two different people’s points of view!

Sneaker Century : a history of athletic shoes by Amber J. Keyser.

I liked the book “Sneaker Century” because it showed how sneakers and shows have evolved from the first shoe to the recent shoe.



Minecraft Tween Program

Our Minecraft Tween Program was a big hit. Everyone had fun celebrating all things Minecraft! We watched cool Minecraft videos, played a Minecraft scavenger hunt, snacked on Minecraft creeper cupcakes, made Minecraft perler bead keychains, and assembled Minecraft cubies.
