The team qualified for the Region 2 Competition after winning the WCPS Elementary Battle of the Books Competition in March. The competition was held in New Bern this past Friday.

The Elementary School Battle of the Books is a quiz bowl style competition that encourages reading. Contestants, who are in grades 4-5, must read 18 books chosen by a statewide committee, and the competition tests students’ comprehension of the books. The Eastern Wayne Elementary Battle of the Books team competed against seven other elementary school teams in Region 2 that also won their district-level competitions.

The Eastern Wayne Elementary 2017-2018 Battle of the Books Team consists of Roberto M.G., Carolyn P., Adrian B., Steven Z., Daniel C., and Izeiah O. The team is coached by Christie Davis and Sarah Robinson.

“We congratulate Ms. Davis and her students for their hard work in defending their titles for both the local and regional competitions,” states Tamara Ishee, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum & Instruction. “This team spent months preparing for the Battle of the Books competitions. Their efforts and their successes have made them excellent representatives of their school and the district.”

The Battle of the Books program is coordinated by the Media Center program at participating schools. The regional competition is the highest level of competition in the Elementary Battle of the Books program.
