2016/2017 Battle of the Books

posted in: Home Page News | 0

Another season of Battle of the Books begins Friday, December 9th. All elementary schools in TLDSB have been invited to participate. It would be wonderful if students at Glen Orchard P.S. could be included in this event.
This board wide competition for Junior and Intermediate students is a friendly contest organized by volunteers and educators within our board on comprehension and reiteration of pre-selected novels. Each division is divided into teams of 4 and those teams are required to read 10 novels within a predetermined amount of time. A “battle of the books” battle between teams at Glen Orchard eliminates all but the most knowledgeable division team. This team would then move on to compete against schools in the north end of the board and the team that wins that battle, will compete for the board Battle of the Books title.
Due to the number of novels needed to support this event, financial support is needed. If you would like to be a sponsor, please contact Mrs. Hennig via the school office. Your continued support is much appreciated.  Le the Battle of the Books begin!
