The thirteenth annual Battle of the Books competition took place on Thursday, March 15, 2012 at Longfellow Elementary School. This literacy competition is designed to motivate fifth grade students to read and have fun doing so! The Battle of the Books also encourages book discussions while promoting responsibility and cooperative behavior.
Teams of students were formed with children representing different schools. Each team member was responsible for reading nine books from a list of twenty-seven assigned books. The books covered a variety of levels, genres and interests.
There were forty-seven teams of fifth graders competing. Participating schools included Cleveland, Cooper, Grant, Jackson, James Madison, Lincoln-Erdman, Longfellow, Pigeon River and Wilson. The top twenty teams were recognized with individual ribbons, medals or trophies. All of the students are to be commended for their effort and participation.
