Battle of the Books Reading List for Incoming 6th Graders

Dear Parent of an Incoming 6th Grader:

During the summer, your child will be required to read TWO books from the list below, however they may read more than two.  These books are a requirement for the 6th Grade Battle of the Books Tournament. Upon your child’s return to school in September, they will complete an ARP Test for each book. ARP tests taken on Battle Books prior to your child’s return to school will not count.  The ARP Test taken upon their return to school will be the first two grades that your child will receive in Language Arts.  All of these books can be found in our school library or in the Ocean County Library System. 

Enjoy your summer reading!
