Please join us in supporting our students in this fun, academic competition!  An all-school assembly will be held in the MS gym on Friday, March 6th form 2:35-3:15. 

 

What is Battle of the Books?

A Jeopardy-like team competition. Final round held at all-school assembly with top 6th grade team -vs- top 7th -vs- top 8th! 

An optional fun and social literacy activity! Great prizes for kids. 

Kids create their own teams.  It encourages reading discussion among friends.

Last year, almost 60% of 6th graders participated!  Great turnout for all grades, and kids loved battling teachers!
