2015-2016 Battle of the Books
It's that time of year: Battle of the Books will be starting soon!! The battles will be held on February 25th (5th and 7th grade) and 26th (6th and 8th grade). If you love to read or if you love to compete, this is for you! You need to set up a team of 2-3 students from your grade level. Your group will be responsible for reading a list of 12 books. You can divide up the list within your group or read them all. At the battle, you will be asked questions from the 12 books in a "quiz show" format. Registration materials and the list of titles are available in the Media Center. We have a lot of fun so please join us! If you have any questions, please stop in the Media Center.
