The Peaches Win!

March 27, 2013

from Holy Cross Librarian, Mrs. Anderson –

Congratulations to the two 4th grade teams that took 1st and 2nd place at the Battle of the Books competition!  

Both teams will represent Holy Cross at the Archdiocese Battles May 6 at Nativity Parish School.  The Peaches (Piper Lindsey, Gracie Vavak, Brett Conner, James Mundy and Jacob Herr) are the 2013 Champions!  Taking 2nd place were The Red Hot Chili Peppers (Maggie Holcomb, Grace Steyer, Hannah Bellau, Patti Ehrnman and Maria Palazuelos).

Also battling at the Oak Park Barnes & Noble bookstore on Saturday, March 9 were the JLEAPIan Alpacas (Patrick Cashman, Jason Haeusser, Lauren Kropf, Emily Nielsen, Anna Deschamp) and The Trolls (Isaiah Gavin, Kenneth Maldonado, Paul Kincaid, Preston Moses, Ben Smith, Will Deschamp).  Both of these teams were well read for Battle, the Alpacas were the winners of the written battle.

I’m so proud of all of this year’s participants, readers are winners!
