Battle of the books is a county-wide competition based on the SSYRA (Sunshine State Young Readers Award) books selected each year. Our school has a 3-5 grade team and a 6-8 grade team.
Tryouts for the 3-5 grade team are Tuesday, January 16, and Thursday, January 18, 2018, at 8am in the media center. Students are expected to attend both days. Students must have read six of the current Sunshine State books to tryout. A team of five third through fifth graders, along with two alternates, will be selected to represent our school at the county competition in May.
Middle school tryouts are Tuesday, January 23, and Thursday, January 25, 2018, at 8am in the media center. Students are expected to attend both days. The county-wide competition for sixth through eighth graders is in March.
