Battle of the Books

Goldenview's annual Battle of the Books competition was held on January 27th.  Nineteen students, divided into six teams, competed to see who could remember the most details from the twelve books on this year's Battle of the Books list.  All of this year's students had all read many of the books, and the scores of all the teams were the highest in memory.  However, one team still pulled far in front of the others.  Congratulations to the Rabid Readers who placed first.  In second were the Awesome Unitatoes.  The Rabid Readers will represent Goldenview at the district Battle of the Books competition at Romig on January 30th.

 Congratulations to all of this year's competitors!
