This will take place the week of January 15-19, 2018 and then the winners will be sent to the SWAEC at Hope to compete in the Reading fair there. It will be on January 23 for 1st-5th graders and January 24 for 6th -12th graders.

Students will also be competing in the Book Wars at the SWAEC. They were given a a book list last month. They will need to read all these books in order to compete. This is kind of like Quiz Bowl. They will have to buzz in to answer questions about different books. They will compete against other towns in our co-op
