Battle of the Books
We are excited to announce that in 2018-19 our 2nd-6th grade students will be able to participate in the reading challenge Battle of the Books. This is a fun program sponsored by the PTA.
Students who elect to do so will be grouped into teams of 4-5 students from their class or grade level that will participate in competitions with other teams answering questions from the books on their list. The more books they read, the higher their chances of winning the tournament that will be taking place toward the end of March.
We strongly encourage our students to participate in this fun event. Parents, you can support your children who are participating by also encouraging them to read and answer questions about their books at home. Practice questions begin with, “In which book . . .” The answer would be the title and author. Book lists are as follows:
