​Battle of the Books

​Battle of the Books is a reading competition. The books we read are based on the Sunshine State Young Readers Award books. This list is new each year. There is a list for 3rd - 5th grade and 6th - 8th grade. The club starts in September and ends with the annual competition held in the Spring.

The Battle of the Books club meets a couple of times a week to read books, write questions, and quiz each other. Five students from elementary and five from middle are chosen for the annual competition team.
