Hodgkins School Reading Challenge 2022 will kick off is February. It is an exciting extension of the former D105 battle of the books. This year Hodgkins School is bringing a version to all grade levels. We will read and answer questions from the nominated Monarch and Bluestem lists from this school year! We will read books as a class, compete with other grade levels and determine a winner at the end of our challenge for an amazing and fun reward! Authors from each of the nominated award lists are scheduled to discuss their books with our students in the Spring. Ready, Set, Read!
