Battle of the Books
​​Battle of the Books 2018-2019
Battle of the Books is a reading program for our grade 4 and 5 students. In the fall, when students sign up for this program, they are committing to reading 9 novels, from the Battle of the Books list for their grade. Before Spring Break, our students compete to earn a spot on the school team (4 spots on each team). Once they have earned a spot on the team, the students work together to practice answering questions about the books they have read. 

In April, the teams will compete in a zonal battle with several other schools. This year's battle date: TBA
