Bonneville Elementary School

presents our THIRD annual Battle of the Books

“America’s Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading incentive program for students…The purpose is simply to encourage students to read good books and have fun while competing with peers.”

Interested students will be part of a team of 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students.  Each team will read from the book list of 20 total books.  In March, teams will come together for a gameshow- style competition tournament where they will work as team to answer questions about the books from the list. Students interested in participating must return the signed permission slip (see link at left) to their teacher by Wednesday, October 26, 2016.
