If your fourth or fifth grader is still contemplating joining an Oregon Battle of the Books team, now is the time to sign up as registration has been extended until the Monday after Thanksgiving -- 11/27. The Parent Consent Form and Team Contract both need to be signed by all team mates. If you do not have a team or in need of more team mates, note this on the registration form.
This fun reading incentive program is completely optional for fourth and fifth graders. Students will participate on their own time and will commit to their team by reading at least five books from the OBOB list.
Feel free to check out this cool website with homemade movie "trailers" of this year's OBOB titles. Most are less than two minutes long.
We are also looking for volunteers to help make OBOB a more meaningful experience for the students. Let us know how you can help by filling out this form. The first tactic session is quickly approaching (the week after Thanksgiving break), and we will need your help with organizing the tactic session, running battles etc.
Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
OBOB is sponsored by the Bonny Slope Community Organization and is organized by parent volunteers.
