Battle of the Books funded in Milwaukie
The Rotary Club of Milwaukie is helping to support literacy and fun at three elementary schools in the North Clackamas School District.
Club members have contributed $1,000 to each school — Linwood, Milwaukie and El Puente elementary schools — for their participation in the Oregon Battle of the Books program. Students read 16 books and compete against teams within their school in a tournament answering questions.
Rotarians and volunteers assisted with the tournament by presenting the questions. The tournament winner is then sent to regionals to represent their school.
