REAMS School Announcements
REAMS Mission Statement
Rockford Elementary Arts Magnet School encouragesástudent imagination, inquiry, and discovery by usingáan arts-infused academic curriculum that fostersácritical thinking and creativity.
REAMS Battle of the Books
The Battle of the Books will be starting soon. áThe goals of the program are to encourage and recognize students who enjoy reading, broaden reading interests, increase reading comprehension and promote academic excellence.
á
Each year, lists of books are chosen and questions are written for grades three and four. Students read the books, discuss them, quiz each other on the contents, and then compete in teams to correctly answer questions based on the books in a "quiz show" format. Questions begin with the words "In which book..." so that the answer will always be a title and author. áThe actual battle will take place in February, so teams have several months to read the list of titles.
á
Students will be introduced to the program in the next week. áThose wishing to participate will need to get parent permission. áPermission slips will be handed out this next week, and students will be able to sign-up for their team and check out the titles after that.á Please contact Dawn McCabe, Media Specialist, with any questions at mccabed@rockford.k12.mn.us.á Here is the link to the permission slip.
