The middle school Battle of the Books team traveled to the Children’s Board to compete against other Tampa charter schools. Our students had to read fifteen books during the school year. At the competition, they had to recall specific details from the books read. The team did a great job for their first year in Battle of the Books II scoring 51 points and taking home 5th place. These students not only competed, but they also dedicated their time throughout the year reading the books and attending the weekly meetings. The following students make up our team here at New Springs:
Jinia Johnson (Captain), Heeba Baazaoui, Elied Almodovar-Acosta, Michlande Eliassaint , Susana Galindres, Bryan McNeal, Dayanna Berkhall, and Gabriela Enamorado.
