Thank you for your patience in awaiting these scores. The large quantity of snow caused the Library to close early on Thursday and remain so on Friday, creating this delay. Hopefully, the anticipation will be worth it.

After this first Battle, the scores remain pretty tight. There are some outstanding challenges which will be reviewed. Any additional points awarded from those challenges will be added to Battle 2's scores.

We look forward to seeing everyone on Wednesday.

Practice Battle Recap

Practice Battle: StE:28, StMB28, LH:23, StMW:21, UR:20, GL:20, PN:19Congratulations on a great effort during Practice Battle.

Please note: you will note see any points from challenged questions in the scores posted here. Any possible points received from challenges made during Practice Battle would be awarded during the beginning of the next battle and go toward's that battle's total score. However, Practice Battle is where the points do not matter, so there will be no additional points awarded, however, we will let you know how the challenges would have turned out.

A few things to remember when answering questions at Battle 1:
* Questions worth multiple points will require the number of answers that the question is worth. For example: a question worth three points, will require three of the multiple choices letters or, in the case of a fill-in-the-blanks, three words to answer fully.
* Matching questions will use a column of numbers that should be matched with a column of letters.
* The timer does not start until Miss Tiffany has finished reading the question on the screen. When time's up, the team may no longer write on their answer sheet.

We look forward to seeing everyone next week!

Practice Battle Recap

Practice Battle Scores: Giles-22; Pennoyer-21; St Eugene-20; Leigh-20; St Monica Blue-16; St Monica WHite-16; Union Ridge-15

Congratulations to the teams for an excellent practice round!

Giles took first place with Pennoyer in second. St. Eugene and Leigh ended up in a tie for third place.  Now, a word of caution: two of the teams in these upper ranks had warning eggs. If that warning had become a negative point, they would have lost their placement. Be aware of your teams' vocal volume and behavior. You do not want to lose your ranking for something that can be easily avoided.

Battle 1 will officially start next week. The scores from Practice Battle do not carry over, so this is a perfect opportunity to start fresh, as all teams will be even again. Remember, each book will covered in every battle, so make sure all books have been read and the experts are in the team square by 4:00pm.

If there are any questions on the rules of Battle of the Books or to declare a food allergy, please contact Kids World.

Good luck to all the school teams!
