SEMS had a dedicated group of readers on the Battle of the Books team this year. They worked hard all year and it showed as they took 1st place against the other middle schools in Rowan county! Congratulations!
Here is a brief description taken from the official Battle of the books website
America's Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program for students in 3rd thru 12th grades. Students read books and come together usually in groups to demonstrate their abilities and to test their knowledge of the books they have read. The student competitions are usually similar to the TV series Family Feud or Whiz Kids styles of competitions. However, the structure, format, and rules of the competitions may vary depending on the educational goals, student needs, local resources, and personal preferences at various school sites, school districts, county libraries, or offices of education.
America's Battle of the Books (ABB) offers resources to students, parents, schools (public or private), librarians, home schools, and international schools.
Kelly Feimster, RSS Director of Instructional Programs, is the district coordinator for the "Battle of the Books" program.
