East Battle of the Books!

posted Mar 12, 2018, 7:26 AM by Elizabeth Berry   [ updated Mar 12, 2018, 7:30 AM ]



This year our East Battle of the Books Team won 2nd place in the K-4 Schools Division!  

Each year, students participate in a quiz style competition against other schools in the county.  Teams are given a list of 15 children and young adult novels.  Students must read the books and learn as much as they can about the details in the stories.  They then go into a head-to-head competition to see which team can answer the most questions correctly.  

In addition, each team votes for the student with the most overall knowledge of the 15 books.  This student is awarded the Dr. Ruth Pace Award.  East's team voted Coley Peters to receive this year's honor.  Congratulations to Coley and the rest of our East Battle of the Books team for a job well done.  Special thanks to Mrs. Erika Melton for all the hard work she does to prepare our BoB Team!

For our October Behavior Celebration, Animal Ambassadors joined us for a great show.  Students got the opportunity to see and learn about several animals including a bearded dragon, lemur, and kangaroo!  The presentation included information about animal survival skills, natural habitats, and the efforts to protect animals in the wild.  Some students even got to hold some of the animals!  If your child took at picture with the ambassadors, we expect Animal Ambassadors will deliver pictures in the next few weeks.  Thanks for all your excellent behavior!
