Students Show Their Skills for "Battle of the Books"

APRIL 21, 2006 -- Alderman Elementary School students battled it out on Fruday, not on the athletic fields, but in the library.

The students read 30 books, and then split into two teams for the "Battle of the Books." The teams answered questions that tested their reading comprehension.

Seven of the Alderman students will go on to the first-ever county-wide "Battle of the Books" for elementary schools.

Teams from 14 schools will match wits in the May 5th showdown.
