The EY team is excited to announce that we’ll be partnering with Ralston Public Schools for the 2016 Battle of the Books Competition. More details will be provided in the fall, but we wanted to make sure you had the book list for summer in case you wanted to get a head start.

Students in grades 3-6 are welcome to form a team of 2-4 students. The book list only contains 15 books and we realize that a couple are repeats from the last two years.

Will students be allowed to be on a team with students from other grade schools?
Good question Ann! I don’t see why not…that sounds like fun! We have a couple students from different buildings doing book studies on Google Docs and then meeting virtually on Face Time. It has worked out well and we hope to expand that process to engage more students.
Are you going back to the original format of teams competing?
Yes, we will go back to the original format of teams competing when we go against the Ralston schools. We haven’t decided if and what we will do at the Westside level for the competition, but in order to participate, it will most likely involve completing projects for the books read. Does that answer your question?
When will the Battle with Ralston be held?
Thanks for your comment Meg. We haven’t set an exact date, but we’re thinking late March.
