Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books 2019-2020 is here!!

Books can be signed out as of December 1st.

How Do I Participate?      (Open to students from grades 3-7)

Step 1:  Sign out a book from the correct grade level bin.  (Max of 1 at a time.)

Step 2: Read.  Try to bring it back in a timely manner so another teammate can sign it out.

Step 3:  Fill out the Battle form to “register” that you read the book.

Step 4:  Attend practices in March/April.

Step 5:  Do your best in the Battle  which will take place in March at Begbie View.   There will also be an opportunity for some of our students to go to Vernon to compete in their Zone Battle.  This will be a day trip for the teams that are formed after our Revelstoke Battle.

Questions can be directed to Mrs. Wilson.
