Battle of the Books 

Each year, the Niagara District Christian Schools compete in a "Battle of the Books." The Junior Team is made up of students in grades 4-6, and the Senior Team is made up of students in grades 7 & 8. Each member reads a selection of eight books. In the Spring, the school teams come together in a competition to determine who has the most knowledge about the eight selected books.

This year the Battle of the Books takes place at: Smithville Christian Reformed Church, April 3, 2020

Seniors: Hand in your first 4 completed book summaries by Friday, December 6 (any 4 of the books). If/when you complete these, continue on with your last 4 books.  The last 4 book summaries are due Friday, January 24.
