Perhaps it was the hand-crafted team T-shirts. Maybe it was how they would agree on an answer and then say it in unison. Or maybe it was careful preparation and thorough reading. Whatever it was, it sure was fun to watch the team of Sage, Isola, Henry and Aidan win the 4/5 classroom BOTB on Friday.
Next Wednesday's school championship is shaping up to be one hot contest!
Great job to all of this year's BOTB contestants!

On January 21st we were delighted to host MCBA author Brian Meehl in the library. He was wonderful! He shared stories from his childhood that influenced him in writing Out of Patience, talked about what made him become a writer--and the other jobs he has held. He was funny and charming and we really enjoyed his presentation. Especially singing "Take me out to the Stink Farm" as he conducted with his plunger! He then joined us for lunch to chat with students. It was a memorable day for our students.
