This week, campuses participated in the Rose City Book Battle hosted by the Tyler ISD libraries. Students work hard to read from a selected book list all year long to ready themselves for this annual competition. The campus Media Technology Specialists select teams to compete for the top spot.

The virtual "book battle" competition tests their knowledge of the books they read. There are two rounds for elementary and middle school students before the head-to-head finale for each grade's top 1st place spot.

It was a tight finals competition, but Jack Elementary was able to pull ahead at the end by one trick question that stumped the rest of the competition.
