Elementary Battle of the Books Parent Informational Meeting

Attention Parents of Rising 4th and 5th Graders

Does your child love to read? Does your child love to read but may have a hard time finding that ‘just right’ book? Consider having him/her join Marvin Elementary’s Battle of the Books team for the 2017-2018 school year.  

The Elementary Battle of the Books (EBOB) program is open to all 4th and 5th grade students. The program consists of reading 15 critically acclaimed books and coming together weekly (after school) to discuss and prepare to answer trivia questions regarding the books. In the spring, our school will compete against other elementary schools in our district to determine who has the most knowledge of the books on the list. This year our  team came in third place which was quite an accomplishment.

If you would like to learn more about our program please consider coming to an informational parent meeting to be held on Tuesday, April 25th  from 6:00-6:30pm in the media center. Sign-ups for our Battle of the Books team will occur in September.

I hope to see you there!

Marci Gerrish, School Library Media Coordinator
