Reading pays off for Battle of the Books Competitors
Students from across the district put their literary knowledge to the test Friday morning for the District's Annual Battle of the Books Competition.
All of the schools in the district competed in the competition; which tested students on their knowledge on books selected by each of the school's Media Specialist. Each group of students had 3 to 5 books they were responsible for reading.
During each round of the competition, students were asked a range of questions from identifying specific quotes to details in the books.
