Eubanks 6th Graders Square off in Battle of the Books

A group of Eubanks Intermediate School sixth graders recently went to battle against each other. Their reading comprehension skills were tested in the annual Battle of the Books competition. This event tests students’ book knowledge as they compete against one another in front of their peers.

Teams competing in the final battle included: The DoReados, The Mean Green Reading Machine, The Genre Goats, and The Reading Rangers. In the end, The Mean Green Reading Machine team won the battle.

The team was led by Captain Will Dyer. Fellow team members were: Paloma Araujo, Eymaan Iqbal, Morgan Carr, and Allie Ferguson. This was a record-breaking year for EIS as sixth graders read more than 980 books in preparation for the battle.

The Battle of the Books is coordinated by EIS librarian Lucy Drenka.
