ABC40 Honor Roll – “Battle of the Books”

LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WGGB) – St. Mary’s Academy student’s in Longmeadow are working on a year-long challenge to promote literacy in their school.

As part of the “Battle of the Books” third and forth grader students signed a pledge last year to read at least ten books throughout the year. Then the students competed by answering questions about the books they’ve read.

Teams from six schools all took part.

Teachers and kids said it was a great way to make reading and learning fun.
