They were picking up books ready to do battle in a competition that encourages students to read a good book and have some fun. The PTA sponsored a big Intra-School District ‘Battle of the Books’ competition at Butterfield Canyon Elementary School. Students from ten schools participated in two divisions, one for 3rd and 4th graders and another for 5th and 6th graders. The students got creative with fun team names like the Rosamond “Reading Bookworms,” Rose Creek “Utah Shazz,” and Silver Crest “Blue Fluffy Penguins.” During the competition student teams earn points by answering questions about the books on the book lists which they have read.
The total number of books read for this ‘Battle of the Books,’ was more than 18,362!!!
- Winners in the 3rd/4th grade division were the Rose Creek “Book Buddies.”
- Winners in the 5th/6th grade division were the Butterfield Canyon “Pudgy Pugs.”
Congratulations to everyone who participated and thanks to the PTA for organizing an event that gets kids excited about reading!
