Battle of the Books
The size of the teams are determined by the number of interested students. Teams must have at least five members and are divided into two categories: third grade and fourth/fifth grade.
Fees and Supplies
The required books have been generously provided by the LCS Foundation; therefore, there are no fees to participate. Books are checked out to students as needed.
Students are expected to read at least three of the books on the book list as assigned by the team leader; however, students are encouraged to read more than this. Students are also expected to attend all of the meetings and competitions. Meetings are held Wednesdays in room 218 until 4:15 p.m.
Students can have a snack at the beginning of the meeting time.
Competitions will be held in December, January, and February. The final competition will be held in March at the Loveland Public Library. All team members are expected to attend the competition even if they are not competing. Please note that students will be required to wear their school uniforms to the competitions. Due to legal reasons, LCS will not be able to provide transportation to the competitions. It will be the students' responsibility to ensure they are at the competitions.
The group will be required to provide scorekeepers and timekeepers for each competition. Your help would be greatly appreciated with this.
