Battle of the Books

Welcome to Battle of the Books for BPS students in fourth and fifth grade! Battle of the Books is a program designed to encourage reading. Fourth and fifth grade students form teams with an adult coach, read from a selected list of six books, and then participate in a contest where they compete with other teams by answering questions based on the books.

Congratulations to the 2020 Battle of the Books winners!
