Novel Knowledge is a Reading Enrichment Program that is celebrating a Decade! Students in grades 4-6 across VUSD's ten elementary schools are challenged to 'Read for Meaning' 8 pre-selected titles. This year to celebrate a decade of reading the competition includes the 10 students' surveyed favorites from the past competitions. The students collaborate and complete a series of questions from each title over several days in teams of four. The #1 team from each site is invited to the District Championship each year in early May.
