Lower School Students Participate in Battle of the Books

Sarah DeMicheli, Marion Hutchins Librarian

Students in Grades 4 and 5 "battled" other teams from the region on April 4-5, 2019.

Students volunteered to divide reading 10 books between them and answer a variety of trivia questions during eight rounds of “battle.” On April 4, five teams of Sewickley Academy Grade 4 students “battled” with 16 teams from the region. Our teams took first, second, AND third place! Congratulations to the Book Brothers (1st), the V.F.D.’s (Very Friendly Decipherers)  (2nd), and the Mysterious Readers (3rd) for their wins!

Four additional teams of Sewickley Academy Grade 5 students participated in the battle on April 5, competing against a total of 14 teams. The Reading Warriors secured third place!

Congratulations to our Lower School students who participated in Battle of the Books this year on remaining committed to reading widely, discussing literature, and working together!
