Battle of the Books!!!



Introducing Battle of the Books Competition Reading Team at VCE

(open to student in grades 3, 4, 5 for the 2018-2019 school year)

What is Battle of the Books?

Students read books from their respective book lists September 2018 - April 2019 and then come together in teams of 4 to demonstrate their abilities, have FUN, and test their knowledge of the books they have read. The BOTB school competitions will take place in early May and the top team in each level will move onto the county competition.


Battle of the Books teams will meet after school one Monday per month starting in September. We will not meet during the month of December. Meeting dates are listed below. The cost is $60 and will include a VCE Battle of the Books t-shirt. You may pick up an application at one of the display boards located on the 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade hallways when school begins.
