Go Guinness Goats!

Nine teams competed in the eight battles in our in-house OES Oregon Battle of the Books. For the past few months, 4th and 5th graders have been hard at work reading the 16 OBOB books and preparing for the battles during Library and regular class time.  Pre-battles during Library classes last week determined which teams would represent their class in the the final battles yesterday.
The winning team, "The Guinness Goats" from Tina Akehurst's 5th grade class, won against the Golden Aardvarks (George P., Kiley F., Ava K., Sonali K. and Mason K.) from Rachel Taylor's 4th grade class in the semi-final round. Congratulations to "The Guinness Goats"-Logan C., spokesperson, Julia M., Sarah S., Arun S., and Julian F!
This team will go on to compete at the Region 1 Competition at Westview High School, March 5th. Next month there will be 11 regional competitions across the state to determine who will go to the state competition in Salem.
