       2014-2015 OBOB Titles for Elementary   

      Thirty-nine teams of four students each have been competing during their lunches and recesses to answer questions about sixteen Oregon Battle of the Books titles.  Friday, February 27 in an extremely close competition, Morgan C's team of Annie, Haley, Maggie & Morgan battled their friends on Lily V's team of Keely, Lily, Makayla, & Sara.  After thirty two grueling questions, Morgan's team won by a small margin giving these amazing readers the opportunity to compete at the multi-county regional competition at Lincoln Elementary School in Woodburn on March 7th.  We wish them well as they meet the challenges of this big event.     Ms. Orand.

Please Protect Our Children. 

Recently several students have stepped in dog feces while on recess and subsequently tracked it back into classrooms and on play equipment.  If you frequent the school with your animals, please consider the safety and well-being of our children, and use the refuse bags provided to pick-up after your pets.  Thank you for being a caring neighbor.
