Battle of the Books

Lower-level students are preparing for the Battle of the Books that will take place in March. This is a quiz-bowl-style competition that takes place each spring among area schools. Grade levels 1st-6th are represented by a team of readers at the local competition to answer questions about books from their reading list. Teachers will send reading lists home this week. Wendy Clay at the Lockesburg Library has partnered with us to make additional book copies available. Contact Ms. Fisk if you have any questions.
