Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books is a fun event for students in Grades 3 to 6 that creates interest and excitement in reading. Each fall and winter, students enjoy quality literature representing a variety of literary styles and perspectives. This year's theme is exploring. A team is chosen in February to compete against 25 other school teams at the annual Battle of the Books competition on March 1, 2012. Through the fun and excitement of the competition, students improve reading skills, mature in their choices of reading materials, and acquire a broader knowledge base.
