The annual Monterey Road School “Battle of the Books” was held on Thursday, May 5th from 8:30 am until 1:30 pm.  The Battle was a fun-filled day with book quiz tournaments, snacks, lunch, prizes and a final Battle after lunch.  


To participate: 4th graders needed to have at least 10 of the books on the Battle list and 5th graders needed to have read at least 12 books.


Thank you to all the volunteers who helped on the day of the Battle to help us out with setting up, breakfast treats, running the quiz battles (readers, timers, and scorers) and lunch.  The kids had a wonderful time!  


Thank you for your support of all the great activities at Monterey Road School!
