Valley View undefeated in book battle

Valley View Elementary School recently took first place in the Rockford Public Schools Battle of the Books tournament.

The students were required to read 27 books within two to three months. They first competed within in their school and the top eight students from each school were chosen for the district-wide battle. Those eight students were then quizzed by the librarians on the books. The students competed in rounds against different schools until all but two schools were eliminated. Valley View Elementary School was undefeated.

Valley View Elementary School students celebrate their Battle of the Books victory with librarian Sue Kaylee and Principal Bob Siegel.
