Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books 2018-2019

Meetings will be held on Fridays, during 6th period (lunch/recess). This school year's selections and due dates are listed below (dates are subject to change). Also, our school library may only have several copies of each book, so it might be necessary to purchase books elsewhere, or borrow them from the public library.

During the month of April, a team of 5 students (plus alternates) will be chosen to prepare for the Diocesan-wide competition on May 14, 2019. That team will be comprised of those students who have consistently demonstrated insight and comprehension of the assigned books.
