Novel Knowledge 2019-20 Book List

District Novel Knowledge Competition is canceled this year.


Novel Knowledge is a Reading Enrichment Program that challenges students in grades 4-6 across our District's 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.
