Parents, please vote for the book choice you want your child to read in K-3 and 4-5 at the below link.
The novels will be read in April but the voting is being done now through November 18th.  If your child has an email address, please let them vote too. Also, if you have separate email addresses, please vote separately.  Meadows is currently beating us with the number of votes so please vote now.  I want Northside to beat all the other elementaries in the district from Miss Taylor, librarian.  #Wearethechampions
