America's Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program for students in grades 3rd-12th. Students read books and come together to demonstrate their abilities and test their knowledge of the books they have read. The competitions are similar in style to the TV series Family Feud or Whiz Kids styles of competition. Team competitions were held in the classrooms, then the school site. Lastly, the third, fourth, and fifth grade teams from Oak Grove and Crown Valley elementary schools battle for the Championship. This year's battle was held on Thursday, June 18.
Congratulations to the following champions. . . they took the Battle of the Books trophy back to their school!
Grade 3. . . Team Wulf (Crown Valley)
Grade 4. . . All-Star Book Worms (Oak Grove)
Grade 5. . . Team Sharpies (Crown Valley)

There are so many resources out there to help with the summer slide. Did you know reading just 5 books over the summer can prevent learning loss?
