EMS Competes in Tuscaloosa County Battle of the Books Tournament

Eastwood Middle School students participated in their first-ever Battle of the Books Tournament on March 18.  The event took place at Five Points Baptist Church in Northport, AL.  The three EMS Battle teams competed in twelve rounds of Battle Book questions against other area schools.  We won eight of our twelve Battles.  Each round consists of three periods of questions.

Congratulations to Kyla Thomas, Carson Moss, and Trinity Clark for being named VIP for each of their teams.  We’re so proud of all our students who participated in the tournament and can’t wait for next year.

Also, I couldn’t have done all this without the help of our chaperones:  Annie and Bobby Halsell, Reneathe Martin, and Lasonda Moss.

The reading list for the tournament was The One and Only Ivan, The Bully Book, Legend, Bomb, Three Times Lucky, and Ungifted.
