Battle of the Books
Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students.  It is designed to improve reading comprehension and enthusiasm for reading using a fun and unique competition format.  Participants are given a reading list of ten books and challenged to read as many books on the list as possible. Permission slips to participate in the program will come home in early September 2012 after the program has been reviewed with the students.  If you are a 3rd, 4th or 5th grade student and think you might be interested in participating for the 2012-2013 school year, feel free to read some of the books this summer.  You will get a head start and be prepared for the competition to come!  :)
