Mock Battle

Our Battle of the Books team was invited to a mock competition at WH Robinson's Barnes & Noble School Spirit Night.  Both teams did a great job, but Creekside emerged the winner with a final score from three rounds of 43 to 40!  We look forward to meeting them in the actual competition in April!
