Are you interested in engaging and empowering your students with literature? Learn how our district has transformed the Battle of the Books. Competition is great...but having only one winner in reading is not. Our new vision, Bibliomania, is student centered learning focused on reading, thinking, creating, collaborating and sharing ideas.
