GMSD rounds out the Regional Battle of the Books competition with first and second place teams
Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading incentive program for student in grades 3-8. The purpose is to encourage students to read good books and have fun while competing with peers. Each GMSD elementary and middle school recruits its own team for battle. Students wishing to participate must read TWENTY books from a list provided by the Battle of the Books program (a growing, national company). They meet in teams to review the books and prepare for a game show tournament.
Librarians at each of our elementary and middle schools graciously host the teams and purchase the books for their libraries. Germantown Municipal Schools are usually the top contenders in the Memphis Area with some of the largest teams and several Regional titles under their belts.
This year, Houston Middle School took the Middle School Regional Championship, while Farmington Elementary came in second in the elementary division. Farmington held the first place title last year.
Librarian and team sponsor of Houston Middle, Mary Anne Cole commented, “Your librarian is so, so proud of these students in how they’ve read all of these books, studied, re-read them, written questions, studied those questions, drilled each other, taken books on band and orchestra trips and just really fought for this. I would like to thank each of these students for their dedication and determination.”
