Eubanks Intermediate Sixth Graders Square Off in Battle of the Books

Last week, Eubanks Intermediate sixth graders faced off in the last Battle of the Books competition of the school year. Coordinated by EIS Librarian Lucy Drenka, the students were tested on book knowledge and reading comprehension in a competition in front of their peers.

Teams competing in the final battle included: The Perfect Publishers, The Ribbit Readers, Beauty and the Books, and The Book Panthers. In the end, The Book Panthers team representing Mrs. Suther’s LA classes, were victorious. The team was led by Captain Jameson Berlew.  Fellow team members were: Caden Jackson, Carter Haskell, Krish Dalela, and Christen Griffith. This was a record-breaking year for EIS as sixth graders read more than 1,083 books in preparation for the battle.
