WISD BATTLE OF THE BOOKS TOURNAMENT -- Friday, April 7

Three Tison "Battle of the Books" teams left the campus bound for the WHS Library on Friday morning ready to compete! The three teams did an ASTOUNDING job, and the 7th grade team "5 Fabulous Frappes" placed 2nd out of eight total teams. The "French Toasters" also won the "Battle of the Books" Spirit Award with the "5 Fabulous Frappes" coming in a close second place for the same award!


Coach Light (who coached the two 7th grade teams), Mrs. Duggin (who coached the 8th grade team), and Mrs. Greer are super proud of our BOB teams and can't wait to battle for dominance next year!
