I am happy to share the good news of our 4th (Yes, our 4th!) author visit this year. On January 28th at 10:00am, Newbery Winner for "The One and Only Ivan" (a current OBOB title), Katherine Applegate, will present to 3-5th graders. Even if your student will not be attending, I wanted to let you know of the event and that we are selling books through Powell's for her visit if you would like to purchase a copy which she will sign.
Another notable event is the culmination of our OBOB work. Teams from 4th and 5th grade will battle on February 10th beginning at 12pm. The winner will represent OES at the regional battle on March 7th.
