Southern Elementary hosted the event in which parents and community members were invited to observe. Northern Elementary won the the competition.
In order to make the team, students had to read as many books as possible from a list of 25 titles. All 4th and 5th graders were invited to participate. Students took a test in March to see who had the broadest knowledge of the books. The top six scorers were invited to be on the school team.
The team was coached by Mrs. Garrett, Librarian/Technology Specialist.
