OBOB Titles for Elementary
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.
