Battle of the Books - Ms. Weeks
Battle of the Books (BOB) is a book competition initiated by the North Carolina School Library Media Association (NCSLMA.) A state committee puts together the list of books for the school year, and teams compete by answering questions about the books. The Whitaker team is open to 4th and 5th graders who are willing to read - and re-read - the books on the list, so they can become "experts" on the books. The team meets on Monday afternoons from 2:30-3:30 pm to prepare for the district competition in the spring. You can learn more about Battle of the Books and see this year's booklist by visiting the NCSLMA website: http://www.ncslma.org/ebob

Trailblazers is a wellness-based service club open to all third, fourth and fifth graders. Our mission is to give back to the community by volunteering our time and energy to serve others. Students will help with recycling, decorate cars to participate in the Whitaker Derby Parade of Cars fundraiser, as well as additional service projects at school and in the community. The club meets after-school from 2:30-3:15 pm.
