Tournament of Books
Book March Madness competition begins at the start of the new year in January. Students read books from a list of 16 titles. At the end of February, students fill out a bracket guessing which book will be voted the best book by the TCIS Middle school students. Then, each week in March, students who chose to compete in March Madness will vote for the best books in pair offs. At the end of March, there will be a top book as chosen by students. Any students who filled out a bracket will receive rewards for having the most answers correct on their bracket. For more information, see the page on Book March Madness linked above.
The secondary Book Bingo Challenge is comprised of six bingo sheets- three for middle school and three for high school. Each bingo sheet has a list of books students can choose to read. Students read books in a row, column, or diagonal to win a prize for each "bingo" completed. For more information, visit the page on the Secondary Bingo Challenge linked above.
