2010/2011 5th Area Wide Book Battle Highlights

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

Yesterday was one of the most exciting day of the year. There was more electricity in the Pattonville Heights' gym than there was outside in the gathering storm clouds as all 34 Book Battle Teams came together to strut your stuff ... and strut you did. Everyone did a fantastic job and the whole committee wants to thank all the students and their coaches for making this battle the best ever!

Kudos to the top three teams are certainly in order.

In First Place Ladue Middle School

In Second Place Pattonville Heights Middle School

In Third Place Hixson Middle School

Even though there can only be one top placed winner you are all winners for working hard, reading the books, and giving it your all.


A very special thanks to James Dashner and Heather Brewer for taking time out of their busy schedules and making this a very special event. The students loved having you at the battle and the committee is very grateful to your both.

Also thanks to Scholastic Book Fairs and the St. Louis County Library for providing their support for this amazing event. 

Until next year keep reading!
