Let the Battles Begin!
The Oregon Battle of the Books is a statewide competition for all 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. Hayhurst has a very enthusiastic group of kids every year who enjoy forming teams, reading great books and “battling” to see knows the books the best. In January or February Hayhurst will have a school-wide competition with the participating teams. The winner goes on to represent Hayhurst at the Regionals with the potential of going on to State.
For more information visit the official website.
3rd, 4th and 5th graders brought home forms to sign up last week, so teams are forming now. The deadline to return the form is October 19th. All teams will need at least one parent coach to help the team prepare. The library is open for optional team meetings on Mondays after school beginning November 5th.
