Longwood Students Participate in Battle of the Bluestems
Longwood 3rd and 4th graders have been busy reading Bluestem books this year. The Illinois Bluestem Award is an Illinois Reading Award selected by students in grades 3-5. Students read from the 20 nominated books and vote for their favorite. As a culminating activity 17 elementary schools met at Graham Elementary for a Battle of the Bluestem competition. This was Longwood's first time participating and our two teams made us proud. The 2020 Bluestem list was just announced. We look forward to participating again next year!
