Battle of the Books State Champions

Middle School Battle of the Books State Champions

Elementary Battle of the Books State Champions

Both the elementary and middle school Battle of the Books teams won the S.C. Independent School State Championship held in Dalzell on November 29. This is the fourth consecutive state championship for the elementary and the second consecutive state championship for the middle school.

Advised by Mrs. Susan Barfield and Mrs. Molly McDuffie, the following students are members of the middle school team: eighth graders William Hardee, Tyler Mahr, Harsh Patel and Derek Smith, seventh graders Kayla Brown, Jackson Mahr, Nathan Owens, Syd Richardson and Steven Scholz, and sixth grader Zach Scholz.

Advised by Mrs. Kathy Coker and Mrs. Susie Herlong, the following students are members of the elementary team: fifth graders Lottie Bynum, Lydia Cheek, Thomas Creech, Ryan Hawkey and Sara Helen Simmons, and third graders Eva Dochtermann, Gracie Nibblelink, Maddie Posch and Wes Sargis.

America’s Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program for students in grades 3-12. Students read books and come together to demonstrate their reading comprehension abilities and to test their knowledge of the books they have read. The teams are given a list of 20 books to read prior to the competition, and then they are asked specific questions about the books to earn points.


Mini Dance Marathon for Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital


Wilson Hall is hosting the second annual Mini-Dance Marathon in partnership with the University of South Carolina Dance Marathon which raises over half a million dollars every year for the Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital through the Miracle Network. The money we raise will be added to the total amount raised by USCDM and will go to support bettering the lives of children at the hospital. Our event will be held in the Nash Student Center on Saturday, February 10 from 5:00-10:00 PM. It is not required to be at the event for the full time, but it is encouraged; we are dancing for those who cannot! We will have food, music, and games for all ages; attire is casual. Admission at the door is $15.00. Help us reach our goal of $13,000 by visiting the Miracle Network Dance Marathon page (search for the Wilson Hall event) which makes donating and registering for our event easy.
