The kick-off meeting for the HA Battle of the Books team took place this week in the Joel & Sarah Sternthal library. Twenty-five students from Grades 8 through 10 munched on pizza and agreed to read a minimum of three books on the 14-title list. The students also organized their in-house teams for the competition and chose team captains. Please click here for the full story and pictures.
The contest will begin between in-house teams at the end of January, culminating with the selection of the final 6-person team that will represent Hebrew Academy at The Battle of the Books against the QAIS schools and ultimately the English Language School board. Our final contest will be held in March.
