Elementary School students placed fourth in Book Battle at the National Jr.
Beta Convention in Savannah, Georgia.
The fifth-grade Book Battle team
included Terralyn Curtis, Rachael Gosserand and Addy Landry. Team members
attributed their success to hard work, encouragement and synergizing.
“We all became super readers and
focused on the four books we each had to read,” Terralyn said.
“If there was a question we were not so
sure of, we put our brain power together and used the process of elimination to
determine the best answer,” Addy said.
“We also put our writing skills to use
for those constructed responses,” Rachael said.
The girls plan to take their team to
the next level and remain as teammates during their middle school years.
Other students who represented West
Feliciana Parish schools were the Bains Elementary Spotlight Your Club team
of Marlie Bedell, Olivia Wilson and Mary-Catherine Lott; and the West Feliciana
Middle School Quiz Bowl team of Andrew Dantin, Ben Ferguson, Thy Hong and
Felipe Del Solar.
