Middle School Battle of the Books Champions Announced! It’s officially an upset! The 6th-grade WAZzys are the champs over the 8th grade Little Einsteins! The top two Battle of the Books teams competed against each other on May 7 after school. The Little Einsteins (Alejandra Diaz-Gallegos, Ilana Lothes, and Maria Verduzco) gave a valiant effort but came in behind the 6th-grade team of Willow Vogelzang, Ava Nygren, and Zoe Olson. There was lots of pizza and ice cream for everyone and the championship battle was great entertainment. This was a great year for Battle of the Books and we are very proud of the hard work and diligent reading that the teams put forth.
