Students and parents recently gathered to watch the first ever Spring Hill School District Battle of the Books competition. Representing the district’s three elementary schools, the battle teams competed originally at the building level and then each elementary school’s overall winner moved on to the district competition.
Battle of the Books is a voluntary, reading incentive program that encourages children to read good books for enjoyment, most of which are written by award-winning authors, and to have fun competing against their peers.
Teams earn points for answering questions pertaining to the 40 different books their teams have read.
The four-person teams spend most of the school year reading and gearing up for the final contest.
Ultimately, the Prairie Creek Elementary School team was victorious. They secured the traveling trophy until these three schools meet again next year to vie for the championship. Congratulations to Hayden, Jordan, Lily and Parker as well as all of the fabulous students who took on the challenge.
