Our school’s librarian, Mrs. Amanda Autry, loves books and loves to inspire children to read.  She uses every opportunity available to pass on a love for reading to our students. Mrs. Autry teaches students the fundamentals of using a library and its resources and some times collaborate with teachers to help them find necessary materials and resources to enhance classroom instruction.  Mrs. Autry is also the leader of our Battle of the Books team.  For more about Battle of the Books, see the information below.

BATTLE OF THE BOOKS

Cumberland County Schools sponsors a program for a team of students from each elementary school to compete for the distinction of being the county champions.

Battle of the Books is a voluntary, competitive reading program for students in both 4th and 5th grades. The purpose is to encourage students to read good books and have fun while competing with peers. Mrs. Autry invites interested 3rd graders to be a part of the practice team.

The team will consist of 8-10 students. The book list has been divided into 3 sets. Students must read all the books in their selected set as well as know  the titles and authors of all 15 books.

Battle Of the Books team meets weekly after school. Contact Mrs. Autry for more information.
