A huge CONGRATULATIONS to State Street Elementary for winning FIRST PLACE and bringing the Beaver County Battle of the Books trophy back to the Ambridge Area School District! For the past three years our district has participated in Battle of the Books, and every year we have had one of our elementary schools make the finals. There were approximately 150 students at the competition vying for this honor, and we are very proud of State Street- Team 1 for the win. Members of the team were Kylie Dreyer, Naomi Husted, and Micah Kwolek. Along with the traveling trophy, the students received individual medals and gift cards to Barnes and Noble.
All of the students at Economy, Highland, and State Street who participated in this year's competition should be very proud of their performances at the Battle. They volunteered much of their free time to read the books and quiz each other on them, even meeting after school, at lunchtime, or during free periods. We are very proud of all their effort!
