Battle of the Books 2023

Published On: January 20th, 2023 | Categories: In The Classroom |

Select fourth and fifth grade students have been working throughout the year reading and discussing fifteen books, and practicing writing and answering book questions during our second year of Battle of the Books (BOB) at Powhatan! We are so proud of their efforts and positive spirit.

After months of solid student work, this afternoon the students participated in the first BOB competition of the school year. Powhatan BOB teams competed virtually against three other NAIS independent schools including Wakefield School, Highland School, and St. James School (Md.).
