Battle of the Books 2016

We will be starting our Battle of the Books for the junior teams the second week of October. Students will receive their first book to read and be responsible to read 2 books over the next 7 weeks. When they are finished reading their first book they should come to the library at the first recess to exchange their book for their second one. All teammates are responsible to read 2 books for their team, but can continue to read all eight books if they choose.


The Battles will take place over lunch time every Day 3 starting Thursday, October 13th. All team members should bring lunches to school that day. They will eat their lunch in their assigned lunch room and then go to the library at 12:00 noon.
