Battle of the Books


Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program. Students read the books on the list and participate in practice “battles" based on their knowledge of details from the book. The Battle of the Books Book Club meets every Thursday during lunch in the library. Students meet in teams, each with a team captain.


The Battle of the Books competition is held during the spring semester. We will compete with other area middle schools for a first, second, and third place team medal. Go Sepulveda!
