2017 Battle of the Books Summer Letter

Dear Rising 5th & 6th Grade Students and Parents,

The Battle of the Books is a voluntary reading program that is open to 5th and 6th grade students in schools throughout the Diocese of Arlington.  The All Saints School group will meet every other Monday after school in the library. An assigned book is discussed in detail each meeting and usually two books are reviewed monthly. There are 15 books on this year’s list representing different genres of literature.  In May, the diocesan meet takes place, where each school is represented by a team of five students.

The first books to be discussed when the program resumes in September are

Save Me a Seat by: Sarah Weeks & Gita Varadarajan

Some Writer: The Story of E.B. White by: Melissa Sweet


Although the Battle of the Books program is challenging, it is also fun for students who enjoy reading books and competition.  I hope to see you in September!

Happy Reading,

Mrs. Vickie Coyle

Battle of the Books Coordinator
