BATTLE OF THE BOOKS AGAINST TMS COMING UP
There are currently six teams from our school that are taking part in the Battle of the Books competition. The week of March 12th, we will hold preliminary contests to narrow the field to four teams. Those four teams will compete against four teams from Tumwater Middle School on Tuesday, March 20th, 6:30 PM, here in the BMS main gym. Anyone is welcome to come and view the competition that evening. It will consist of teams answering questions about each of seven books that they read. One of those eight teams will get bragging rights until next year!
