Richmond Battle of the Books WinnersA team of Richmond students tied for first place in the 2019 Battle of the Books, organized statewide by the Wisconsin Educational Media and Technology Association (WEMTA).

The 5th grade team consists of Ella Mielke, Ava Monroe and Lyla Pingel.

Students are given a list of books in June from WEMTA, and they have most of the year to read them and become experts on them.  

Titles this year included works like Bruce’s Big Move by Ryan T. Higgins, Hello, Universe by Erin Entrada Kellyand Wishtree by Katherine Applegate.


Students read on their own time, then work with Librarian Mrs. Yach and principal Mr. Knaack during lunch practicing with computer-based quizzes.
