Battle of the Books Update!

Our TIS Battle of the Books 4th grade team competed in Regionals in March. They placed 12th out of a much larger group that included 5th grade teams. Not bad for our first time out there – and for starting the reading  about 6 months after the other teams! Congrats, Battlers!

The 2018-19 Book List is now available for the Oregon Battle of Books! After a successful inaugural year at TIS, we hope even more students will participate next year! OBOB is for third through fifth graders, so current second graders can get started on reading too! 

We would like to invite any kids thinking about participating to join us in reading the OBOB books, discussing them, and testing each other with OBOB-style questions. We plan to tackle one or two books a month, depending on the length, starting in April. We will meet at a time that works for the majority of participants. Interested?
