Club for Kids Who Like to Read and Compete

Dear Parents,

First, here’s to hoping that the first weekend of your summer vacation was a good one!

Second, I had a quick announcement that I wanted you to be aware of: I am starting a Battle of the Books reading club for Track 4 students of all grade levels.

Meetings will be held two days a week during Spartan Time and occasionally after school.

For those of you who don’t know, Battle of the Books is a state wide reading competition where teams of kids from different schools compete against one another to "show what they know" about a collection of books chosen by the state’s media specialist association. We will have an "in-house" competition first — and the team who wins will advance to a county competition held in the spring.

The club is a GREAT option for kids who love to read and love to compete.

If this sounds like something your kid would enjoy, encourage them to come find me at the beginning of the year.

And if they want to get a head start on the competition, point them to this list of books.

Let me know if you have any questions,

Bill Ferriter
