The annual Battle of the Accelerated Readers featured teams of the top point earners from each grade in the year’s Accelerated Reader program. While encouraging students to read more and better books, the program also provided an opportunity for a little competition among those who really read a lot this year.
Although teams were divided evenly by points earned by each participant, the “battle” was rather one-sided as the Blue team jumped to an early lead and never looked back, 120-72. This year’s special questions involved books which were read by grandparents and books that were made into movies. All students were encouraged to dress as a favorite book character as part of a Student Council Dress Up Day.
