Super Scavenger Hunt: A Multicultural Reading Incentive at Potowmack ES
Students will begin searching the library for books to complete their scavenger hunt as part of Potowmack's Celebration of "Multicultural Month" in February.

To complete the scavenger hunt, students must record titles of the books they read as well as post a book review on Biblionasium.com.
