Mrs. Bush’s class at Grangeville Elementary Middle School (GEMS) proudly displays their Battle of the Books lanyards. Students receive a pin for each of the books they read. Teams of about five will compete in April by answering comprehension questions on this year’s 20 selected books. Approximately 200 books have been read so far by the fourth- and fifth-grade students at GEMS. This program was spearheaded by parent volunteer Katie Told and Principal Dr. Anderson, who have both seen its ability to motivate young readers.
