Battle of the Books

From the Howard County Library:

"Are you ready for the Battle of the Books!? Friday, April 19, 2013 at 7pm
One of the most exciting components of A+ Partners in Education, Battle of the Books gets fifth grade students excited about reading. A lively academic competition, Battle of the Books improves reading comprehension, builds vocabulary, and teaches teamwork and good sportsmanship. 

Teams of five students and one adult coach each read the same 16 pre-determined books. 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, copies of each year's titles are available for borrowing at Howard County Library System."

This program is supported by the Friends of the Library.  To support these types of programs join the Friends.

  What a difference a couple of weeks make.

P.S. 1
   Newspaper headline I never thought I would read "Elvis impersonator sends poison to President in the mail."
