  • Hi Parents and Students!

    Thank you so much for all of your support and participation this first quarter.  It was great to meet so many of you for the first (or second!) time at conferences.  I am also so grateful for the donations to our classroom library from the Book Fair and offers for supplies! 

    I am so overwhelmed with gratitude at the support that Desert Mountain receives from involved parents like you!

    Thank you again!

    Mrs. Kosberg

  • One

    by Kathryn Otoshi Year Published: 2008

    Blue is a quiet color. Red’s a hothead who likes to pick on Blue. Yellow, Orange, Green, and Purple don’t like what they see, but what can they do? When no one speaks up, things get out of hand — until One comes along and shows all the colors how to stand up, stand together, and count.

  • Nothing But The Truth

    by Avi Year Published: 1991 Documentary Novel

    Patriotism or practical joke?

    Ninth-grade student Philip Malloy was suspended from school for singing along to The Star-Spangled Banner in his homeroom, causing what his teacher, Margaret Narwin, called "a disturbance." But was he standing up for his patriotic ideals, only to be squelched by the school system? Was Ms. Narwin simply trying to be a good teacher? Or could it all be just a misunderstanding gone bad—very bad? What is the truth here? Can it ever be known?

    Heroism, hoax, or mistake, what happened at Harrison High changes everything for everyone in ways no one—least of all Philip—could have ever predicted.
