Students at Woodview Elementary are preparing for battle, but the fight isn’t on a field or court or in a gym. Eight teams of students will challenge each other at the ?? annual Battle of the Books preliminary round, slated for Wednesday, February 24 at 4 p.m. in the school media center.
The third-fifth grade students have read and studied five fictional books, selected by local youth librarians, with the top three teams at each local venue earning the right to advance to the county-wide battle scheduled for March 10 at 6:30 p.m. at the Ionia County Intermediate School district.
The participating libraries are: Saranac Public Library, Portland District Library, Lake Odessa Community Library, Sunfield District Library, Clarksville Area Library, Lyons Township District Library, Ionia Community Library and Alvah N. Belding Library.
Parents and friends are encouraged to come cheer on their favorite team!”
Woodview Battle of the Books is lead by Kathy Lehman and Karen Flynn.
