Oregon Battle of the Books 2013

Congratulations to all of our 2013 OBOB participants!  What an amazing community of readers and thinkers we have.  The winning team was the "Benchwarmers" from Mrs. Williams 5th grade class.  They battled against  "the Night Ghants" from Mrs. Narramore's 4th grade class to win the final spot and will represent OES at the March 16 OBOB regional battle held here at OES.  This is the first year that all 4th and 5th graders participated in reading the 16 titles and we had over 40 battles in pursuit of determining the top team.  I am so proud of the work and effort all of our students put into this event.  They displayed team spirit, cooperation, dedication and leadership.

Happy Valentine's Week!

Want to cheer up?  Come by the library for a "Random Act of Kindness".  Primary, 1st,  and 3rd grade students have made and hidden valentines throughout our library.  If you find one, it's yours to keep and cherish.  Or pass it on to share the love!
