Battle Participants: Please come to our meeting on Monday with an idea for a team name and a list of the five books you're most interested in reading.
We've gotten some of our Battle books in and will be meeting during Channel One on Wednesday. Bring a friend and plan on leaving with a great book in-hand!
A Battle of the Books team is forming here at Camanche High School! This is a book competition that potentially means a trip to Marshalltown for the Grand Battle in April! Visit the Iowa High School Battle of the Books page for more information.
