The second annual Battle of the Books Competition between Borland Manor Elementary and Hills-Hendersonville Elementary took place on Thursday, May 19, 2022.  The event was held in the afternoon, and a total of 44 students between the two buildings participated.  Students were presented with the challenge of reading five assigned books over a six week period.  Then, a trivia style competition took place virtually between the two buildings.  The format of the competition this year used the learning platform, Kahoot.  Students also used a Google Meet to introduce themselves to their peers in the opposite building. 

Everyone who participated received a gift bag full of reading related prizes; three grand prize winners from each building were awarded gift cards to Barnes & Noble.  While the competition was friendly, students raced to answer each question correctly in hopes of a grand prize.  The Battle was presented by Mrs. Bethany West, reading specialist at Borland Manor and Mrs. Rebecca Thompson, librarian at Hills. 

Top winners for Hills:

  • Lucas Schnieder
  • Pinal Pote
  • Teagan Bickel

Top winners for Borland Manor:

  • Vincent Gross
  • Finn Baker
  • Brooke Borrelli

Congratulations to all of our our CM readers!
