The North Florida region had their Battle of the Books on Tuesday, May 28th, which was graciously hosted at Waterset Charter School. The battle was between Union Park, Waterset and Winthrop. The students were well prepared and each team represented their school with pride, grace and professionalism. In the 3rd grade battle, Union Park took 1st place, Waterset took 2nd, and Winthrop came in 3rd place. The 4th grade battle was between Waterset and Union Park with Union Park taking 1st place and Waterset coming in 2nd. In the 5th grade battle, Union Park took 1st place, Waterset took 2nd and Winthrop came in 3rd place. The 6th grade battle was definitely a nail-biter! This battle ended in a tie between Winthrop and Union Park. After going into double overtime, the battle ended with Union Park in 1st place, Winthrop in 2nd and Waterset in 3rd. The 7th grade battle was between Waterset and Winthrop, with Waterset coming in 1st place and Winthrop in 2nd.
Since only Winthrop had an 8th grade this school year, they battled with their own classmates. There were three teams made up of two students each and they battled it out. Although, it would have been nice to battle with other schools, the students got the experience and did a super job.
