• The Battle of the Books (BoB) program encourages reading and exposes students to quality literature representing a variety of literary styles and viewpoints by prominent authors. Based on NCSLMA guidelines, each WCPSS middle school selects up to 12 students to form the Battle of the Books team for their school and prepares for the BOB competition using a game format which creates interest and excitement in reading. Interested students should enjoy reading and should be able to read as many of the books on the current list (26 titles) as possible. In November, a selection test will be given to interested students to determine the top 12 students for West Lake Middle. The WCPSS Battle of the Books Competition will be held locally on a Saturday in February or March. For more information visit: www.ncslma.org
