The purpose of the Elementary Battle of the Books program is to encourage reading by all students at the elementary school level. Students, regardless of ability, are exposed to quality literature representing a variety of literary styles and viewpoints by prominent authors in the area of young adult literature. The game format creates interest and excitement in reading. Through the fun and excitement of the competition, students improve reading skills, mature in their choices of reading materials, and acquire a broader knowledge base. Even during the height of the competition, students and coaches should remember that the goal is to READ, not necessarily to win!

    Making the Team


    Students are required to read all 15 books, pass the AR test for each book and attend scheduled practices on a regular basis. The maximum number of students allowed on a team is 12.  Should there be more students trying out for the team than there are spots available, and have read and passed all of the AR quizzes, the the coaches will select students that make the team by average AR scores, attendance of practice, and behavior/performance during practice.
