Future Knights take the crown in Battle of the Books

Team champions and runners up from elementary school-level battles took part in the annual Mexico CSD Grades 3-4 Battle of the Books, with dozens participating at all levels.

Each team read books ahead of the school-level competition, and answered 12 questions trying to identify which book and author is referenced.

The winner of this year’s district battle were the Future Knights from New Haven Elementary School, featuring students Lucas Lighthall, Layne Parkhurst and Victoria Reed. They will advance to take part in the regional battle against other local school districts.

In second were Mexico Elementary’s The Brainstormers, followed in third by Palermo Elementary’s The Book Adventurers. All teams and student participants are listed below.
