Battle for the Books

Both of NECP’s Battle of the Books Teams did outstanding jobs at the Region 3 Charter Competition at Edgecombe Community College on March 9.

Our Elementary Team placed 2nd, competing with Vance Charter and Casa Esperanza Montessori Charter. Our Middle School Team won 1st place for the second year in a row against Kestrel Heights Charter, Casa Esperanza Montessori and Falls Lake Charter. These teams traveled from Durham, Raleigh and Henderson to participate.
