Battle of the Books - Rea View's First Team!

Rea View’s first Elementary Battle of the Books team began meeting on Tuesday, January 3. We were very excited to be one of only four elementary schools in the county to participate in this start-up year. This state-sponsored competition follows the same format as the middle school program. 16 fourth and fifth grade students spent over two months preparing for the district competition on March 5. Students read from a state-generated list of 18 books and practiced answering specific questions about content from the stories.

The team had two practice competitions against Marvin Elementary and Antioch Elementary in preparation for the district competition. Although the questions at the district competition were tough, our team did a fantastic job, coming in 2nd place by only 5 points! What a great effort by our students, and we are excited to continue the program next year!

Staff sponsors of the program were Lisa Shaw and Jennifer Zywicki!
