• Battle of the Books is a statewide reading challenge for 5th & 6th grade students.   Students will create teams of 3 (or less) members who will read 4 books every 3-4 months and then compete against other teams on knowledge of characters, plot, settings etc.   The competitions will take place approximately each quarter, in our library, with the championship in April/May.   First they will compete against other WW teams and then the winner will compete against other schools in our district and finally the winner will compete against other schools in our state!   The competitions are managed by a member of DVEF from the district office.
