I would like to invite 4th and 5th Graders to join our Battle of the Books team for the next school year. Although we are not sure exactly what school will look like next year, we are going to move forward with our planning for the Battle of the Books.

Battle of the Books (BoB) is a diocesan competition involving 4th and 5th grade students, 15 books, lots of reading, discussion and fun!

Everyone is invited to join the club. However, only 5 students will actually participate in the diocesan competition in May 2021.

So if you love reading new books and you remember what you read, please join us!

Complete the attached form with your parents and return it to me. You can send it to me through email.

You can preview the books at this link or look at the list attached.

Battle of the Books Preview 20-21

Most of the books on this year’s list are in the public library. I will also have a full set in St. John’s library. I encourage you to buy a few books over the summer to start reading. I like to buy books on Thriftbooks.com. They have many used and new books at great prices. Amazon is always a good place to look!

If you have any questions, please email me.

God bless,

Mrs. Teresa Paccassi
Keeper of the Books
