Children Reading

Kindergarten through 2nd Grade competitions will be held District-wide over a telephone conference call on February 7th and 8th. (This date changed to a few days earlier than our first news release.)

For the 2018-19 school year, M.E. Battle of the Books practices will begin on Wednesday, January 9, 2019. Students needed to be to school and have eaten breakfast before 8:05am each day to participate in practices. After the initial weeks of practice, grade level coaches established teams based on attendance and participation at practices. Teams have 3 members and typically one additional student as alternate.

Parents interested in assisting with Battle of the Books practice or competition should contact their student's homeroom teacher to make arrangements.
