Don't miss this great Vacation week event

A great final!

Today's Battle of the Books final was as exciting as predicted. The score was extremely close, and spectators were holding their breath on each correct response. The level of detail that students retained on each book was amazing. In the end the 6th grade team of Sage, Izzy, Henry and Aidan held on for a sweet victory. This team has been together for three years and it's wonderful to see them finally reap the rewards of their hard work. Congratulations! They will face the Swift River team via Skype on March 3rd.
