Battle of the Books Winners



Dear CLES Families,

If you haven't heard or had a chance to see our Twitter feed, please join me in congratulating our CLES students who participated in Battle of the Books (BOB)!  If you have not heard about BOB, you can find more information at the Howard County Library website

"Teams of five students and one adult coach each read the same 14 pre-assigned books over four months. Selected by HCLS instructors and HCPSS media specialists, titles include a wide range of reading levels and subjects. Thanks to generous sponsors, all teams receive a set of books. In addition to reading the books, teams choose a team name then dress accordingly.

During the “battle” (a 50-question exam), a moderator asks questions that relate to one of the following: a direct quote from one of the book characters; a statement about something that happens in the book; a passage taken directly from the book; details about an illustration or picture. Winning teams receive prizes."

Centennial Lane Elementary School had 17 teams participate!   All of the teams should consider themselves winners for completing the assigned reading and growing their minds/knowledge through the power of books.   Please join me in congratulating the following winners:
