2017 Eisenhower Battle of the Books

Fifth grade students have been reading and studying the Iowa Children’s Choice Award nominee books since January. Six teams of five students competed in the Eisenhower Battle of the Books on Friday, April 28 in Eisenhower’s small gym to show what they had learned. The kids worked together with their teammates to make sure that all of the books had been read by someone on their team. During the Battle, they could work together as a team to answer each question. The Battle was very close with the final three teams tied up until the very end!

Congratulations to our wonderful readers!  They ALL did a remarkable job!

A big THANK YOU to Mark Schmitt and Happy Joe’s on University for sponsoring trophies for our winning team and donating a luncheon pizza certificate to ALL participants! Our winning team, shown below, will be representing Eisenhower at the District Battle of the Books at Bryant Elementary School on Friday, May 12 at 1:30.  We wish them good luck!

The Eisenhower team had a very strong showing at the District Battle of the Books on May 12. They tied with Kennedy School for second place in the District Battle. Great job team!
