Congratulations to our Middle School Battle of the Books team for winning 1st Place in the District MBoB Competition. The purpose of the Battle of the Books program is to encourage reading by all students at the middle school level. Students, regardless of ability, are exposed to quality literature representing a variety of literary styles and viewpoints by prominent authors in the area of young adult literature. The game format creates interest and excitement in reading. Through the fun and excitement of the competition, students improve reading skills, mature in their choices of reading materials, and acquire a broader knowledge base.

- Parents are invited to download, and complete, the parent verification form from the Chatham County Schools homepage located at: http://www.chatham.k12.nc.us/. This form is also available from our school's front office if you do not have access to a printer or the Internet.
- Parents are then asked to present a separate completed form at each school where families have students attending a Chatham County School.
- Parents will need to present some form of photo identification at each school to ensure the safety and security of student information. For parents who are unwilling, or unable, to provide photo identification they may seek a public notary of their choice to notarize the verification form.
