Parent Coach(es) Needed for Battle of the Books team or it will be cancelled!

Currently there are no coaches to keep the program running for this fall. Wheaton Public Library needs to know if Lowell plans to compete by early June!!


Next year's Battle of the Books (BoB) season is just around the corner and Wheaton Public Library has released the new reading list!


Students need to start now to read the 50 book titles and compete against other local schools next January through March. Battle of the Books is open to all interested readers who will be in the 4th and 5th grade this fall!


Contact Tracee Scott-Otis (tso_email@yahoo.com) and Caroline Wiltfang (carolinewiltfang@comcast.net) for details on how to coach next year's Battle team.
