Battle of the Books!!

Dear Parents,

students on the Battle of the Books teamEach year St. Ambrose School participates in the diocesan competition, Battle of the Books, under the direction of Mrs. Healy. They are required to read fifteen books throughout the school year, and meet bi-weekly to discuss and quiz each other. Guests are sometimes brought in to review the book with the group (one of my favorite activities to do!).

At the culmination of this they participate in the competition. Today was that day – and our team won first place in their division! We are so proud! So, congratulations to: Captain Bridget Bushman,Samantha Hess, Christine Nguyen, Reilly Savage and Luisa Williams, and alternates, Cecelia Ahlers, Angie Llewellyn and Abigail Moran. Of course no achievement is complete without an excellent director, so we are very grateful to Mrs. Healy for her leadership and mentoring. We are truly blessed!
