student on Google MeetAfter months of meeting for lively book clubs and practice battles, the Cunningham Park Elementary seventh annual (and first virtual) Battle of the Books took place on Friday, May 8, on Google Meet. Librarian Meg Brinkhuis coordinated the battle, which included four teams. Teacher Veronica Pereira, bedecked in her special occasion book costume (made entirely from the pages of books), served as emcee. The teams--the Book Sweeps, Nothing But Battle, the Calculators, and the Renegade Readers--competed in fast-paced rounds of jeopardy-like bookish questions. At the end of the competition, the teams adjourned to the Library Google Meet where they enjoyed our traditional ice cream sundae event from their own kitchens, with the ice cream courtesy of each of their families.
