•  2023-2024 BATTLE OF THE BOOKS

    11th Annual DVEF BATTLE OF THE BOOKS

    Fifth and sixth grade students compete in teams of one, two or three students (with a minimum of 4 teams per school and a maximum of 30 teams per school) to test their knowledge in two exciting school competitions during the 2023-2024 school year. Points are cumulative for the year, and the winning team from each school will move on to the district-wide competition.

    The first step is to sign the Student-Parent Agreement.

    When all the team members have their agreement forms turned in, they may fill out the Team Form

    Teams are assigned three different books to read for each competition. The top scoring team from each school ( cumulative from both school Battles) will compete in the district finale Thursday April 4, 2024.
