Bowaq Anowlic and Cole Matthews beautifully represented Family Partnership Charter School at the District wide Battle of the Books on January 28, 2016.


Playing four rounds of increasingly difficult questions, Bowaq and Cole worked smoothly together to answer questions from 15 different books. They not only needed to know to which book the questions referred, but also the exact name of the author. They did AWESOME!


Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute by Jarrett J. Krosoczka was Bowaq’s favorite book while Cole was partial to Fortunately the Milk by Neil Gaiman. I don’t think I had a favorite but if you want to see what these kids read and competed with, check out the list below. BoB Advisor Teresa Hintze recommends them all!
