  • Battle of the Books


     The statewide Battle of the Books program is designed to promote a love of reading among our students. It encourages students to read a variety of books and remember information about the plots, characters, and settings of the books. Every question asked in a battle is answered by the title and author of the book and takes the form of: Name the book in which a horse and a boy are stranded on an island. It is a fun, academic-based competition that has been very successful in school districts throughout the state in encouraging students to read.
    Hard copy permission slips can be found in the MS Media Center or parents may fill out the electronic version below.  Permissions slips need to be completed no later than September 30th!
