Canyon Creek Battle of the Books May 3, 2010
The big day is almost here! The Battle of the Books is a year long voluntary reading incentive for Canyon Creek Middle School Students and Cape Horn-Skye Fifth Graders. Students must read and verbally summarize 12 books from the list of 30 to participate on Battle Day. Book Battlers will be competing in preliminary Jeopardy/Knowledge Bowl type rounds all morning. The top two teams will challenge each other in the afternoon Grand Battle. Michael Piekarski will be serving up a special lunch for our Book Battlers. Kam Lawrence has arranged for some great mid-day entertainment. We are looking forward to lively competition and fun on Battle Day!
Update: Reading is Out of this World
Canyon Creek Middle School hosted its second annual Battle of the Books on Monday, May 3rd. This year 31 students qualified to be in this all day event by reading at least 12 books from the list of 30. The team Federation Enterprise won first place in the Grand Battle. This team included 1 eighth-grader, two sixth-graders and two Cape Horn-Skye fifth- graders. Lunch was a delicious meal of hydroponic salad, light speed breadsticks and intergalactic ziti with asteroid meatballs. A fifth-grader won the airplane throw during the entertainment segment much to the delight of her team, Deep Space Nine. All six Book Battler teams had a great day of competition and fun.
