Battle of the Books

Page history last edited by Kendra Allen 7 years, 11 months ago

All students are welcome to participate in Battle of the Books, a literary competition that tests students on their knowledge of the books listed below. Team members are required to read books from the list and write questions to be used during practices. In February, a team representing HGMS will compete against other WCPSS middle schools in head-to-head battles on stage, in front of an audience.


Any students interested in participating should see Ms. Allen. All students are welcome to track the progress of these reading athletes on the bulletin board in the Media Center.
