Our teams are preparing for their next Battle as points are accumulative and everyone still has a chance to win the final round.
The Deer Valley Education Foundation (DVEF) is sponsoring this year's Battle of the Books. Students in grades 5 and 6 are eligible to participate by creating teams of no more than 3 students. There will be three rounds between October 2019 and April 2020. Each round has 4 books for students to read and teams earn points based on correctly answering questions about each rounds books. The team with the most points at each school will move on to compete at the District level, where all books will be featured. One team will emerge from the Deer Valley School District to compete against other Arizona school districts in May 2020.
