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!
