Battle of the Books is a competition for students in grades four and five who have a passion for reading.  Selected students will be asked to read approximately twenty books and become an expert on the content read. During the competition, students win points for their ability to recall intricate details of the books.  It is an exciting opportunity for book-lovers to compete in a fun, competitive environment, and to build friendships with other like-minded students.

To prepare our students for the competition, they meet after school on Thursdays in the Media Center from 3:00-4:00 to practice and review book summaries. If you would like more information on Battle of the Books please contact our Media Center Coordinator, Ms. Frazier @ 910.860.7058 or kayfrazier@ccs.k12.nc.us

The running club is held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00-4:00 for 3rd-5th-grade students who have signed up and turned in a permission slip signed by a parent/guardian. Mrs. Biagi and Mrs. Sauter are the running club coaches. Other teachers often run with them as well. During the meetings, students do running drills and exercises.  We plan on having a small group run in the All American 5k in March. Parents are welcome to come run with their child or come out to cheer them on! For more information, please contact one of the coaches.
