Battle of the Books! Coming up March 15, 2018

We are so excited to be planning for our Battle of the Books 2018.  Thanks to a generous grant through our JEF foundation, we have been able to purchase the books for the classrooms as our students prepare for the annual battle! This year we will still have our battle among the students in each grade level who will compete against each other in teams.  We will also be having a special battle at the end with teams made up of 4th-6th graders who will all be reading a great book called Wonder by R.J. Palacio that addresses subjects of bullying and friendship.

This is a great time to get our kids excited about reading!  We encourage families to talk to their kids about what they are reading for battle of the books and ask questions.  We even encourage families to read the same books as their children and discuss the books with them.  It can be a great way to interact with your kids and keep them motivated!  GO EAGLES!! 

Here is a list of what we are reading in 2nd - 6th grades.  K-1st will be coming soon!
