John Long Middle School's 2013 Battle of the Books has Begun!

Battle of the Books is a program that promotes reading among students. It encourages students to read a variety of books and remember information about the plots, settings, and characters of the books. It is a fun, academic-based competition that has been very successful in encouraging students to read. 

Students create teams of three people within the same grade. Participating students read as many books as possible from a selected list. The teams then “battle” with their knowledge of the books by answering questions in a tournament format. All participants will receive a certificate of participation and will be invited to attend a pizza party after the final battle. The top three teams will receive a medal and another prize! 

There will be a short informational meeting for students after school on Tuesday, February 12, in the LMC. All teams should be formed by Friday, February 15 and signed up with either Mrs. Ward or Ms. Slowiak. The tournament will begin after Spring Break. Please contact Mrs. Ward at 262-376-5834 (jward@grafton.k12.wi.us) or Ms. Slowiak at 262-376-5809 (lslowiak@grafton.k12.wi.us) with any questions.
