Elementary Battle of the Books 2023-2024 Grades 3-6

     We are so excited to participate in the Elementary Battle of the Books. Students who wish to participate will be reading from a twenty book list this school year. Those students who read five books will qualify to compete in our school’s battle and go to a pizza party.  The school battle will consist of students answering multiple choice questions about the twenty books. The more books read the better. Four finalists will be picked to go to the district battle. All books must be read by the end of January. The school battle will be in February. The district battle will be  some time in March. Here is a list of this year's books.
