It’s time to start forming teams for the Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB)! Hayhurst students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will be hearing about OBOB in their library classes very soon. Last year we had around 45 kids participate and I would love to see even more kids this year!
Here is the presentation your students will be seeing during their library classes. Hayhurst OBOB 345 Presentation
