Battle of the Books

The St. James Battle of the Books team competed on February 22 as the only non-public school in this very unique competition. After reading 10 books, the students were challenged to recall details of the books and answer 60 questions. These are not simple recall questions, but very detail oriented requiring hours of reading, re-reading and practice.

We are extremely proud of our 4th place team which answered 51 out of 60 questions. The winning team answered 58 questions correctly. Thank you to Mrs. Gillespie for volunteering her time and expertise working with our team for this quarter!
