This year there were 30 kids that participated in OBOB (Oregon Battle of the Books!) Students in grades 3-5 put together teams and not only read, but immersed themselves in 16 different books! The learned them front to back! All teams competed at our school battle. Then our winning team ( Lily Jaquiss, Isadora Ponce, Helen Dreasher, Eleanor Palandri and Max Glomski) went on to the regional battles, where they did an amazing job! It is such an honor and a pleasure to see kids immerse themselves in reading, work together as a team and have a ton of fun in the process! If you are an upcoming 3-5th grade student, grab some friends and put together a team for next year! Next year’s picks should be out in no time! We will be honoring all those who participated later in the month!
