**Battle of the Books**

What is the Battle of the Books?

This is an activity that promotes and supports reading and in past years the students have been caught up in the spirit of cooperation, collaboration and team rivalry to read as many books as possible. The Battle of the Books kicks off in November with an after-school Read-a-thon. Students can stay after school to eat pizza, read books and win prizes. The actual competition takes place in the spring, but in the meantime students can come down to the LMC and win prizes by answering the Question of the Week or submitting questions that are used for the Question of the Week.
