2nd Annual Battle of the Books


On March 11th, four teams of 5th and 6th graders and two teams of 7th and 8th graders competed in our second Battle of the Books. This was a librarian’s dream, well at least it was a dream for this middle school librarian! The Battle of the Books is a regional competition in which students work in teams to read and study a set of eight novels over the course of the school year. The students then participate in a “Jeopardy-style” tournament to demonstrate their knowledge of the books. We are so incredibly proud of all the students and teacher volunteer coaches that took part in this year’s battle and we can’t wait to do it again next year. A huge shout out to our two winning teams! Our 5th/6th grade team, The Bookworms, won by three points. Congratulations to coach Mr. Jackson and his team members; Reagan Dixon, McKenzie Schug, Emma Collacchi and Kaylie MacMaster. Our 7th/8th grade team, Brilliant Booksters, was coached by Mrs. Wight, with team members Jocelyn Caputo, Trinity Speer and Kayleigh King. Both of our winning teams will go on to compete at the Regional Battle on April 16th.  #justkeepreading
