~Springside Elementary Presents~
America's Battle of the Books 2016/2017

America's Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading incentive program for students in grades 5th - 6th.  The purpose is simply to encourage students to read good books and have fun, while competing with peers.

Information is being sent home with your 5th and 6th grade students this week! This is a great program and we are excited to offer this here at Springside.

 This program is free for all who wish to participate but we would appreciate any and all donations to help us fund it.

We also need volunteers to help us run the program!  Please send me an email at jjmiller@alpinedistrict.org if you can help in any capacity and I will send you more information.
