    Granite District Battle of the Books 2016-2017 Competition Winners
    May 1, 2017 Josh Whiting
    On April 13, 2017, over 50 student teams from 18 different elementary schools in Granite School District
    converged on Gearld Wright Elementary for the first annual Granite District Battle of the Books competition.
    Student teams went head-to-head in this “Family Feud”-style game, in which their knowledge of the 15 books
    on the official 2016-2017 reading lists was put to the test.
    We congratulate all of the students who read and participated in the battles,
    whether in their school or at the district competition. We thank all of the media clerks, teachers,
    administrators, parent volunteers, and others who tirelessly supported this program and inspired
    our students to find excitement in reading. Check out the winners of our 2016-2017 competitions!

    Upcoming Event: #GSDEdTech Teacher Chat, May 11, 2017
    Our monthly #GSDEdTech Teacher Chat series continues in May with the topic:
    #letthemlead: Empowering Students to Take the Lead.
    This chat will be held on Thursday, May 11, 2017 at 4 P.M via the #GSDEdTech hashtag on Twitter.
    To go along with our theme of student empowerment, a chat participant will be randomly chosen
    to win a classroom set of Canon PowerShot digital cameras, which their students can use to
    record video and take high quality digital photos.
    The Educational Technology department sponsors a monthly educational chat on the second
    Thursday of each month to provide an easy way for educators throughout the district to connect with each other, discuss timely
    issues, and share ideas specific to our community.
    The chat is open to all K-12 educators, staff members, and any interested community members. We hope that you will join us.
    If you are new to twitter chats, you can find out how to join them here,
    or feel free to contact any of us in the Educational Technology department with any questions.
