In our library at Hill Field Elementary we strive to create an atmosphere where students feel empowered to become independendent, effective information seekers. We support curriculum in order to promote lifelong learners who love reading for both information and pleasure.
Book Battles: Hill Field Elementary will be participating in Davis Book Battles again this school year. Check under the Book Battles tab for a list of this year's books. When students have read one of the books and have filled out a book battle paper (signed by their parents) they will receive a lanyard and pin. If they read all 15 books, they will receive a special pin and reward for reading all of the book battle books. Happy Reading!
