Candy Readers Head to 2017 OBOB Regional Tournament

It’s been an exciting last few weeks, and what a finish! The fifth grade team, Candy Readers took the Bonny Slope School Championship title on Feb 12, narrowly defeating the fourth grade champs, The Joyful Purple Fire Breathing Hawaiian Dogs. The Candy Readers will represent Bonny Slope at the OBOB Regional tournament on March 17.

All teams put their hearts into reading the books, doing mock battles and were very composed with their expertise, all the while exemplifying great sportsmanship.

During the last few weeks, teams showed up prepared to battle for the opportunity to represent Bonny Slope at the regional.  In one case,  two fourth grade teams endured eighteen (18) tie breaker questions to determine the winner, with many battles resulting in close and exciting finishes.  Congratulations to all the kids for their hard work.

OBOB participation embodies the IB attitudes of confidence, cooperation, curiosity, enthusiasm, independence, integrity, and respect.

A huge thanks to all the participants, their parents, the fourth and fifth grade teachers, volunteers and BSCO’s OBOB chairs, Chevy Pham, Aparna Srinivasan and Kai Chen. OBOB is supported through your generous BSCO donation.
