2015-16 Results:

The 2015-16 EBOB team went to competition in March at Denton Elementary.  Our team worked hard and performed very well!  We placed 5th! It takes a lot of dedication to be on the Battle of the Books team in order to read ALL 18 books, but each one of our team members met that challenge and did a fabulous job!
