Battle of the Books 2014
The Battle of the Books is a competition between SRVUSD middle school students who love to read. Participating schools will meet during the spring at Cal High School for a Jeopardy-style competition to see who can answer the most questions about the 9 books they will read. Stone Valley won last year so we need to earn our title back! We have won the Battle of the Books two times in the six year history of the competition. Let's hope we do it again. This year's titles have been chosen and we are in the process of ordering them. If you are interested in joining the team, come see Mrs. Gantt in the library. Also, listen to the announcements to see when our first meeting will be. Mrs. Gantt will have several copies of each book for students to use. Go Jaguars!
This year's titles have been chosen and we are awaiting Board of Education approval! If you want to get a head start...read away. Remember, the Board hasn't approved these for our competition yet so you might read an extra book (never a bad thing).
Here are the titles:
The Alchemyst: Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott
Blood on the River: Jamestown 1607 by Elisa Lynn Carbone
The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander
Chomp by Carl Hiaasen
