As you know there has been much debate around “Battle of the Books.” After several discussions with families, the librarian team and administration had a lengthy discussion and took into consideration all input that was received. The outcome of our discussion resulted in new guidelines for all “Battle of the Books” teams. Moving forward each team may have up to 3 participants from the same class. Each team is made up of 5 total participants. We are encouraging all teams to have two participants from another class and hope that this new rule will help to encourage new friendships in all schools. Our Librarians will help form the teams in January. We want to thank all our librarians for volunteering to provide this opportunity for our students. This is not a required part of their day and are grateful for their focus on our students!
