Hello everyone! We have started the Battle of the Books program for 2022-2023. For those who may be unfamiliar, Battle of the Booiks involves students in Grades 4 , 5 and 6 reading 9 books. Every student in that grade who takes part reads the same 9 books. The books appeal to a wide ariety of interests, and often are starters for a series or an author that students may wish to pursue. We have begun our meetings to talk about the books and answer questions. Each student taking part is encouraged to have read the 9 books by now. In late March, we will have a competition for those who wish to participate. The winners of that competition will then compete against other schools in April.
Students have been invited to participate, and if they have chosen to join, they have been given a list of the books. Books are available here at the library, and students are also welcome to borrow them from the public library. I would encourage all students in Grades 4, 5 and 6 to give it a try, as there are some really good books on the lists this year. Happy reading!
