Battle of the Books Team Try-Outs for Grades 3-5

Let’s Get Ready to Rumble!  The Battle of the Books team try-outs are coming soon!  Students in grades three through five are invited to try-out for the team.  Try-outs will be the week of January 30th during Library classes. *

Interested students will take a quiz on the following 10 books:  Crenshaw, The Chicken Squad, The Terrible Two, The Amazing Life of John Roy Lynch, Circus Mirandus, Hamster Princess, Woof, Mesmerized, Imogene’s Last Stand, and Doll People.  Students with the top scores will be invited to join the team.
 Team members will practice 1-2 weekly until our competition in May against the other Georgetown ISD elementary schools. Practice days/times will be determined with the team members.
Students interested in trying out must sign up in the Library!!!! 
Please contact Mrs. Thiel with questions at


*Please note the change in date due to the UIL Competition!  We want our UIL and Battle Team participants to be able to focus fully on each individual completion, so the try-out date was delayed one week.*
