  • 2022-2023 Idaho Battle of the Books

    It's like sports but with books!

    Watch this Promo Video!

    Idaho Battle of the Books, or IBOB, is a statewide voluntary reading motivation and comprehension program open to all Idaho students in grades 4-12. IBOB is meant to:

    • expose students to quality literature representing a variety of literary styles and viewpoints
    • encourage and recognize students who enjoy reading
    • share the love of reading with students who have not yet discovered that for themselves
    • broaden reading interests
    • increase reading comprehension
    • promote academic excellence
    • promote cooperative learning and teamwork among students

    Lists of books are chosen, and questions are written, for each grade level division; elementary (grades 4-6), middle/junior high (grades 6-9) and high school (grades 9-12). Students read the books, discuss them, and then compete in teams of four students to correctly answer questions based on the books in a quiz show format. Levels of competition begin at the school or local library level, and continue into regional and state competitions.

    Teams are currently being created for the middle/junior high division at Burley Junior High School (grades 7-8) and Declo Junior High School (grade 6). If you are interested in participating at your school, contact your school librarian or reading teacher. Librarians or teachers with questions can contact Cindy Young at BJHS or find more information and the lists of books at the IBOB Website: idahobattleofthebooks.org

    Copies of the 2022-2023 Middle/Junior High titles have been added to our Sora collection and are listed here:

    • Fever 1793 – Laurie Halse Anderson
    • The Blackbird Girls – Anne Blankman
    • The Rig – Joe Ducie
    • It Ain’t So Awful, Falafel – Firoozeh Dumas

  • SchoolPulse Logo

     

    Cassia County School District is working to meet the needs of our children in a number of ways. These unprecedented times have caused us to look for additional tools that keep students connected to positive messages of hope and resilience. Strong emotional health helps all students reach their potential as caring, contributing and responsible friends, family members, coworkers and citizens. Our district seeks to support students and families in comprehensive ways.

    For students in grades 7-12, we have partnered with SchoolPulse to support encouragement through weekly inspirational messages that come to your child and you, if you opt in, through text messages. The messages provide skills for coping with daily challenges and promote productive skills for communication and relationships. This tool is intended to strengthen a student's built-in support system along with encouraging personal resilience.

    This program is optional and is only accessed if someone opts in. There are no passwords or logins and it is free. Phone numbers and responses are completely confidential and anonymous and will not be used or shared for any reason.

    Students, families, and teachers, are dealing with a broad range of personal difficulties that may be causing distress and some issues take more time and more specific help. The district continues to encourage students and families to reach out to our school counselors or utilize our Connect program (1-800-926-9619), when needed. SchoolPulse is a complement to other resources for students and families. The district encourages you to utilize your benefits through the district's EAP.

    If you have specific questions, please contact your school counselor.

    Students and parents can opt-in starting October 8. To subscribe, text DECLOJR to 78573 and your child (and you) will immediately gain access to positive content.
