Everyone’s talking about Battle of the Books 2014! Rick Lieder, co-author and photographer/illustrator of Step Out Gently, blogged about how much he enjoyed meeting our fantastic fifth graders. You can read his post here.
Our first place team was The Native Nerds, who scored an incredible 100 out of 100 points! Second place went to The Epic Five with 99 points. Three teams tied for third place with 98 points each: Book Assassins, Captain Book, and Superhero Readers. Overall, the scores this year were very strong. Our fifth graders worked hard and their dedication shows!
ONTV, our Orion Neighborhood Television station, put together this clip of the Battle and the Awards Ceremony. We’re so proud to be a part of such a wonderful community!
