Battle of the Books

Each year students in grades 3-6 are encouraged to participate in the SB County Battle of the Books, a reading competition which has been used in schools for more than seventy years. 

The aim is to support students in their love and discovery for reading by introducing them to quality literature, to offer books that build upon historical values and the dignity of life, and to develop friendships between students based upon socialization, competition, and mutual respect.
Students gain knowledge and enjoyment from reading good books, sharing them with friends, parents, and teachers.  In addition, students who participate at the SB County Battle of the Books in the spring enjoy a fun day "battling" with other students from local schools.
