PT's Battle of Books is a literary event organized and run by elementary librarian, Ms. Christine Chesky, and sponsored by the PTCEF. Students in grades 3-5 from the district's five elementary schools form groups and read a total of 10 books in preparation for "The Battle," at which they work cooperatively to correctly answer questions about their assigned reading. Groups are also judged on costumes and overall school participation. This year's Battle involved 230 of the district's elementary students.
