BSES students will have the opportunity to participate in a Clemson vs Carolina reading competition. Contest participants are entered to win 4 tickets to the Clemson vs. Carolina game, sideline passes, and pre-game activities!

A parent letter/log will go home on Monday, September 29th.

1. Choose which team your child will read for and check the box on the log - your child may only choose one team.

2. Help your child complete the 6 book log as they read throughout the month of October.
