Novel Knowledge 2018-19 Book List

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 three or four.  The #1 team from each site is invited to the District Championship each year in early May. 

See the flyer and other forms in the locker at left.
