What is Battle of the Books?

Students read from the Rebecca Caudill Collection and favorite titles chosen by the students. They will read independently and have discussions at scheduled times during their lunch.

Teams are later formed in February and competitions are held in March and April.

A competition is held between the grade level teams for a building champion. We also will have the opportunity to compete with Hawthorn Middle South.
