• Battle of the Books!


    Battle of the Books is a program offered exclusively to 5th and 6th grade students. Students work in teams of two or three students, reading four books per quarter. After the fall, winter, and spring intersession, the teams will compete to see which team correctly answers the most questions about the books and scores the highest points! This program is optional.


    The only requirement is that you commit to all three quarters so your team will not be stranded without you. Meeting times and locations will be determined after permission forms are received. 

    The books are available to check out from our Library.
