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!
