2018 Eisenhower Battle of the Books

Fifth grade students have been reading and studying the Iowa Children’s Choice Award nominee books since January. Five teams of students competed in the Eisenhower Battle of the Books on Friday, May 4 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 competing right up until the very end!

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

Our winning team, shown below, represented Eisenhower at the District Battle of the Books at Hoover Elementary School on Friday, May 18. All 13 Dubuque elementary schools sent their winning team to this Battle. Eisenhower’s amazing team kept their nerves in check and made it to the final “sudden death” round against Bryant Elementary. All of their hard work paid off and they won the District Battle!

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!

We are so proud of our winning team! Way to go!
