Battle of the Books

After careful thought and consideration, the decision was made for our district not to participate in a competition for the 2020-21 school year.  This was a difficult decision that was not taken lightly.  With so many unknowns because of the pandemic, this felt like the best path for our students.  The books on the list are amazing stories!  I encourage you to check them out!
