All seven middle schools in @dcsnc came together today to compete in the annual Battle of the Books competition. Each school competed 6 times, going head to head with other teams answering questions from a list of 25 book titles, for a total of 21 rounds.
Never before has the competition been this fierce! Judges and scorekeepers checked and tabulated numbers numerous times before announcing this year's winners. Three teams tied for third place, each scoring a healthy 91 points: Ledford, Tyro and Brown Middle. Last year's winner, Oak Grove Middle, came in a close second with Central Middle School taking first place.
Coach Jennifer Jackson will accompany her team of Spartans to the Region 5 competition in Winston-Salem on April 4th where they will compete with teams from 15 other school districts. The winner from that competition will go on the the state level event.
All readers are leaders, but just like any sport, winning takes practice, dedication and perseverance. One CDMS student was so thrilled with the victory that he had to share his BOB story:
A very special thanks to Central Middle staff and Principal Sloan Denny for accommodating the competition today.
