News & Notes

Welcome to the 2015-2016 Battle of the Books season.  Up to twelve fourth grade students have been nominated to participate in this enrichment program of literacy, teamwork and friendly competition.  This group of students will  read a collection of  books then test their knowledge in a quiz bowl style battle against other teams from around Buncombe County Schools.

This year we will be participating in the North Carolina School Library Media Association's Battle of the Books.  We will use the official list of books which is quite large.  

Whether you are selected to participate or not, these books are well worth your while.
