Battle of the Books Winners!

Battle of the Books Winners!
Posted on 03/13/2019

On March 11, 2019, over 530 students on 67 teams from local school districts competed in the 2019 Battle of the Books. We are thrilled to announce our Argyle third-graders missed only one question out of 14 on their way to first place in their division!

The event, which was coordinated by the Washington-Saratoga-Warren-Hamilton- Essex BOCES School Library System took place at SUNY Adirondack Community College in Queensbury, NY.

For months leading up to this day, students in grades 3-6 read and studied five fiction and five non-fiction books in preparation to battle it out with competing schools. The teams, each consisting of around 10 students, tested themselves on every kind of book detail imaginable, from the plot to the dedication. During the competition, they had 20 seconds to answer a recall question, responding in the form of author and title. There were 28 questions per round.

Pictures below are our grades 3-6 heading out to the competition! We are incredibly proud of this entire group for working hard and representing Argyle CSD!
