Battle of the Books

Hawthorne's Battle of the Books team traveled to Milton Library on Monday with hearts set only on a fun learning experience having had only a handful of practices. The team worked together to answer trivia questions in a series of six battles, coming up with many more answers than they expected to know. Satisfied with a fantastic first battle experience and plans to do even better next year we returned to school with smiles all around. These smiles grew into enormous cheers and grins when we learned that Hawthorne had placed in the top two of the 14 schools competing.  This amazing result means the team moves on to the Grand Battle.  Huge congratulations go out to Iman A., Katelyn P., Kate J., Marium Z., Alexis P., Mariela H., Rayan R., Suha P. and Reeham W.! Please join us in cheering them on with well wishes for the next battle!
