Congrats to Battle of the Books & Science Olympiad Students!

Congratulations to our Battle of the Books team and awesome coaches!

For the 2nd year in a row Holly grove participated in the county level Battle of the Books. 12 students were selected to be on the team from the over 30 students participating at the school level.

Students are required to read 18 books that have been picked by the NCSLMA (North Carolina School Library Media Association). That is no easy task!! As they are reading the students met once a month to practice answering questions about the various books. Questions are very detailed and require students to pay very close attention to minor details as they are reading.

On April 11th our team of 12 attended the county battle at York Elementary. The students arrived feeling very prepared and hopeful to place higher than last year. A total of 5 schools participated in the battle and each school competed against the other schools once in order to determine a winner. Each round consisted of 12 questions. Holly Grove won all four of their rounds and came out the overall winner!! We are so proud of our team and the hard work they put in to prepare for the battle.

Team members:  Alex F., Kenyen G., Emily E., Elias C., Logan R., Lauren R., Samantha A., Amanda K., Jacob W., Rou-Pey L., Lawson B, and McKenna H.

We will also be having a school battle at the end of the year for all of the Battle of the Books team members that participated this year. 


Congratulations to our fantastic Science Olympiad teams and our terrific coaches.
