Our all-girl 5th grade team competed today in the Clarke County Battle of the Books. It was a tough competition with many outstanding teams. Although our team did not win this year, we are extremely proud of their hard work and dedication to reading. Congratulations to Hanna, Ana, Avery, Molly, and Caroline for representing Barrow well. We also would like to congratulate Alps Road Elementary who won this year’s battle. I had the opportunity to hear their team compete, and they were very impressive. Their all-boy team knew the books forward and backward and could locate info in a book in a matter of seconds. I was very proud of the level of reading in our district that was represented at Clarke Central High School today. Bravo Clarke County students for your achievements.
