Guys Read

Hey, Guys!

What is the Guys Read club?
Simple! It gives guys a chance to meet and talk about all kinds of stories and information.  It is all about giving guys a fun way to find new reading of all kinds. (no book reports, no tests, no stress). Mr. Hora and Mr. Cox have been sponsoring the club for a couple of years.
