• What is Battle of the Books?

    It's a fun reading competition that tests students' knowledge of the selected.  Teams of 8-12 participants read the 18 selected Battle books in December, January and February.  In February and  March, teams met to practice for the battle. On March 20th, all the teams competed in the school battle to see which team knows the most about the books. Coming soon: pictures from this year's battle.
