Battle of the Books

Battle  2018-2019  Sunshine State Young Reader’s Award Titles 

 The Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program for students in third through twelfth grades. Students form teams of three to five students who read the Sunshine State Young Readers Award (SSYRA) titles. At FCMS, there are three different battles.  Each battle includes five of the fifteen SSYRA titles. (If there are five members on a team, each member has to read on book!) The questions asked at each battle are about the details of the five different stories. All of the answers to the questions are the titles of the five books. The team accumulating the most points from all three battles will be our winner and will represent FCMS at the SJCSD Middle School Battle of the Books in March, 2019.

The first of three battles is scheduled for Wednesday, October 10 at 8:00am in the cafeteria.  Students need to complete the Schoology quiz on their book by Monday, October 8.  For more information, contact Mrs. Jaeger ([email protected]) in the media center.
