Julie Beckett, Sennett Middle - The middle school LMTS's did a big refresh of our 7th and 8th grade Battle of the Books booklists this year, and Julie took on the volunteer job of taking all of our new questions and putting them all into Sheets and updating the randomizer so that all of the rest of us can continue to do our Battles electronically.
