Eubanks Sixth Graders Square Off in Battle of the Books Competition

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

Teams competing in the final battle included: The Do-READ-os, The Refrigereaders, Book Lasagna and The People Who Read. In the end, the Do-READ-os team representing Mrs. Aldridge’s LA classes, was victorious. The team was led by Captain Bennett Berlew. Fellow team members were Kaylynn Bartlett, Cort Whitney, Matteo Longarini, Olivia Fuchs and Hannah Jordan. This was a record-breaking year for EIS as sixth graders read more than 1,044 books in preparation for the battle.

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