2021-2022 Battle of the Books

  • The Elementary Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading program and trivia competition for fourth & fifth grade students in Humble ISD. Students who want to participate must commit to reading their assigned books, attending meetings/practices (bi-weekly Thursdays 3:00 to 4:00pm starting Nov. 18th), and if their team advances to the finals, attending the competition that will be held on Saturday, April 9, 2022, 10:00-12:00, at AMS (Atascocita Middle School). Students may purchase copies of the books they are assigned, but it is not a requirement. We will also have a school competition to determine the final competing team on a TBD date in March.

     

    Applications are due to Mrs. Mitchell by Tuesday, November 9th.  BoB team members will be notified by Friday, November 12th.  Our first meeting will be Thursday, November 18th in the library.  Current academics and behavior are a factor in the decision.  Please be aware that there are limited spots due to the nature of the competition.  We will only be able to accept a maximum of 36 students into the program.  Please make sure you are able to make the time & reading commitment.
