Congratulations to our school Battle of the Books team!

Congratulations to four fifth grade students who represented our school at the state Battle of the Books competition sponsored by the Wisconsin Educational Media and Technology Association. This team worked hard throughout the winter to read the 20 required books. In February they competed with schools from around the state to determine which team could correctly answer the most questions about these books. All Battle of the Books participants were rewarded with a pizza party on March 27.
