Muggle QuidditchHello Readers,

Muggle Quidditch was a huge success.  Our only problems were the extreme heat and loosing the Snitch in our final match.  I can’t wait to try again next school year.

If you or your parents have any pictures they would like to share, please send them on and I will add them to the site.

Muggle Quidditch

Hello Readers,

As the end of our school year rapidly approaches I would like to invite and explain our final activity to you all.  The final Wednesday of the school year, that is the 25th of June, will be our final meeting for both SMS Guys Read and SMS AFFL.  We will meet in Mr. H’s room right after school and stay until around 4:30 that afternoon.  After that I would love to have a celebratory meeting over at the Goodberry’s on Davis Drive.  I have laid everything out in this letter, which SMS Guys Read guys should have with them.

One other part to this extravaganza will be a reading based science project that will tie the end of this Guys Read year to the beginning of next year.  I am asking that the guys wear a sock to the Quidditch game that they can donate to science.  It can be an old sock, or mismatched monster, but it will be taken from the lads after the game and kept by Mr. H.

Parents, siblings and friends are all invited and encouraged to stay and cheer the lads on during they game and celebrating with us at Goodberry’s after the match.  We will play on the practice field along the side of the school near the behind the baseball field.

If you have any questions please email Mr. Hutchinson.

Phantom Tollbooth Crazy Spelling Bee Finals

Hello Readers,

Yesterday at our SMS Guys Read lunch meeting we completed our Crazy Spelling Bee inspired by the Spelling Bee in Norman Juster’s novel The Phantom Tollbooth.

The finals ended with a collection of great words pulled from Tom Angleberger’s short story entitled Rise of the Roboshoes™ from the Guys Read: Other Worlds anthology.

It was a lot of fun, and I was really surprised at the spelling ability.

Spell On,

Mr. H

SMS Guys Read Fish Flop

Hello Readers,

So we are nearing the end of our collective school years here in the realm of the Intercontinental Ballistic Reading Group and we here at SMS Guys Read wanted to go out with a bang.  So the lads decided they wanted to try a flash mob.  We came up with some ideas and plans today at our meeting and will “perform” the flash mob sometime next week.

Today we tried a little dry run with a Fish Flop.  I think it accomplished our goal, of freaking out all of their classmates as they came back from lunch.

So check back next week as we bring you our Grande Finale Flash Mob…
