Novel Knowledge is a Reading Enrichment Program that challenges students in grades 4-6 across VUSD's ten elementary schools to read and reread eight pre-selected titles. Students collaborate and complete a series of written questions from each title over several days at their school sites in teams of four. The #1 team from each site is invited to the District Championship each year in early May.
