OES OBOB Team Wins State!

Congratulations, Milkshake Shooting Ninja Kiwis!  As the State Champions, our OES team beat out 18 other teams from all over the state this past Saturday in Salem.  They showed off their competitive reading skills with both grace, endurance and excellent sportsmanship.  Excellent job!

What an awesome visit with Peter Lerangis!  Our 3rd and 4th graders were captivated by Peter's humor and stories about his journey as an author.  He gave us the inside scoop about the creation of the 39 Clues series and inspired many to try the popular series.  Thanks to FOESL, Kim Bissell and the Children's Place bookshop for helping us create a successful visit.
