Myers, who learns language arts with middle school teacher Tanya Joanos, said her favorite subject is reading, and she likes mainly fiction, especially mysteries.

“I like to read in the living room, that’s the best place,” Myers said. “No one can bother me.”

She’s enjoyed the Hunger Games trilogy, and is now poring through “The Book Thief,” a best-selling adventure tale of a nine-year-old girl who makes her way through World War II Germany by stealing books.

“I like it when it leaves you waiting for more,” she said.

Myers, daughter of Belinda Lockley and Henry Myers, said Joanos also “makes us write a lot,” an excellent way to learn to master the spelling of words.

She took a moment after her win to say “thank you to my mama and to my school.”

In addition to Myers, Montgomery and Juno, representing the charter school were fourth graders Weston Bockelman and Meredith Alford, fifth graders Jack Vail and Camille Davis, sixth grader Camille Williams and seventh graders Dajon Penamon and Kevin Flores.
