LET THE BATTLE BEGIN!
This year the elementary schools in the Clover School District will be participating in a “Battle of the Books”. We currently have seventeen 4th and 5th grade Bethany students participating. By the time we go to the district competition on May 19 that number will be whittled down to 9-12 of our top readers. We have some super readers signed up. Some have already read 7 of the books and made 100’s on their AR quizzes; and they have only been working on the books for 2 weeks! GO BETHANY!!
