Calling All Readers!

November 22, 2011

Holy Cross Librarian Anne Anderson has extended the deadline to enter teams into the school’s Battle of the Books competition. 4th, 5th and 6th graders are encouraged to put together teams of 4 – 6 people to participate, as well as an adult ‘team manager’ to help them.

The teams get a list of 30 books to read.  In the spring, Mrs. Anderson coordinates a tournament competition between the teams, quizzing them about details from the books on the list. The top two teams in the Holy Cross tournament will participate against other schools in the Archdiocese.

The new deadline is Friday, December 9. Talk to Mrs. Anderson if you have any questions.

Mrs. Anderson is also organizing a Book Club for our Jr. High book lovers!  The book club for 7th and 8th graders will meet in the library at 2:30 on Tuesdays in December.  Please bring along three book suggestions.
