Battle of the Books Club Update

On March 18, the New York Mills Battle of the Books Club was scheduled to take a field trip to Hamilton College for a Regional Battle of the Books Competition against several local school districts. This event was, of course, canceled due to COVID-19. We're happy to announce that on June 10, the New York Mills Battle of the Books Club will meet virtually with members of the Holland Patent Club for a friendly competition based on their knowledge of this year's books.
The clubs had a virtual meet and greet together on June 1, and the students are all very excited to end this school year with a final battle against our rival Holland Patent. Plans are already underway for next year's Battle of the Books and a summer reading list will be generated soon. Students entering grades six through eight who are interested in joining the club should email Mrs. Howe for more information and a copy of the summer reading list to get a jump start on next year! Have a safe and enjoyable summer.
