Attention Lindbergh families
of 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders!

Planning is underway for our
2018 Battle of the Books!

What it is:  Students are divided into multi-grade teams, and each member will be asked to read and answer questions on 3 books from a list of 10.  These books are popular titles and will be reserved for our participants in the school library; however, you may need to also check out the local library, as we will not have copies for every participant.  Many of these books you may already own!
The complete book list will be given to participants at our
Kick-Off Meeting on Wednesday, December 13th.  (Please see the information and sign-up form that was sent home with students last week.)

~~We also need parent volunteers to be team leaders, as well as a co-chair to take over for next year’s Battle! ~~
Any questions, contact Amy Fradkin, amy@fradkin.net

Important dates:
–November 1st:  All sold ticket stubs and money collected along with any unsold tickets are due back to Lindbergh no later than this date.  It is a legal requirement of the State of Michigan Lottery Association that we collect all tickets for this fundraiser, regardless of whether they’ve been sold.

We can only accept cash or checks maybe payable to “Lindbergh PTA.”
