And the Winners Are...10th Annual Area Wide-Book Battle Highlights

Wednesday, May 4, 2016


Once again  some of the best area-wide middle school readers got to show off the power of words in the 10th Annual Area-Wide book Battle. All of the students who battled deserve high praise for their dedication to reading. As teachers and librarians we hope that their love of reading follows them throughout the rest of the lives.

That being said, the book Battle Committee wants to honor the winners of this year's battle...



Our First place winner is Rockwood South Middle 



In Second Place Pattonville Heights Middle School


and 


In Third Place Holman Middle School


We would also like extend a special thanks John David Anderson for being a part of this year's Battle.


Rest up and get ready for next year's 
11th Annual Area-Wide Book Battle
