America’s Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program for students in grades 2-12. The goal is to encourage students to read good books and have fun while competing with peers. Students compete in teams similar to the style of competition in the TV game show Family Feud. To learn more about the organization, visit www.battleofthebooks.org. Kaleidoscope is excited to bring this program to our L’Anse center this summer! To sign up, follow this link!
