From the Library
Battle of the Books
We hope your student will join us for another great year of reading and competing in America’s Battle of the Books. This is a free, voluntary reading program for students in grades 3-6 and is so much fun! All students need to do is register and then start reading the books on their book list. Students who read three books by December are invited to join a team and attend a pizza party in the library. Students then work with their team and continue reading titles on their book list to prepare for the battles in March.
There are 20 books on each grade level list. Students do not have to read every book on the list, however, the more books each person on the team reads the better chance they have when answering questions about the books in a battle. The book lists are available on the library website. The school library has multiple copies of all the books. The books are also available for check out in ebook format on SORA at soraapp.com, our school’s online library.
Deadline to register is Friday, September 22nd!
If you order a t-shirt when registering (t-shirts are optional), please pay the $9 cost on MySchoolFees.
