Battle of the Books

  • Battle of the Books is a competition for students in grades four and five who love to read.   The competition resembles a book-based Jeopardy:  students read approximately twenty books and become experts on their contents.  During competition, students win points for their ability to recall intricate details of the books.  It is an exciting opportunity for book-lovers to compete in a fun and competitive environment, and to build friendships with other like-minded students. Program sponsor is Media Coordinator, Janet Quant.
