This year we had boys in 3 different schools competing in Battle of the Books other wise known as B.O.B. It was Joseph’s first year as a 4th grader at the Intermediate School, Morgan in 7th grade Middle School and Elijah 9th grade High School. This was the 3rd year for both Elijah and Morgan to compete. In B.O.B they have 6 required books to read then they take a test about the books to see who gets on the team and then they get 2 out of the 6 that they specialize in, memorize it front and back, inside and out. They practice weekly then in April compete against other schools in the county. Its a scholars bowl for books. The boys did fantastic and we couldn’t be happier for them as they all 3 earned Top Point Earner for their team!!!
Joseph started the brothers out getting the 1st medal on Tuesday then Morgan(Team Captain) competed on Wednesday bringing home his Top Point Earner medal and 1st Place Team trophy!!! This was the first year for Chelsea Middle School to win 1st place and they were thrilled to have won!
Last but not least Elijah completed the Tribeca bringing home his Top Point Earner for the Garrett brothers! Grammy and Paw Paw were up visiting for a few days so they were able to go watch and catch a few lacrosse games too.
