3rd-5th Graders Hold FAIS Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB) Virtually

FAIS held our 3rd-5th grade Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB) battles this week by Zoom. We had 29 students participate virtual, with teams reading 16 books and answering book-based trivia questions in a double elimination style tournament.


OBOB is a statewide reading competition that encourages students to read a variety of genres and authors. Teams (made up of four students) compete against each other for the chance to represent FAIS at the OBOB Regionals tournament in March.  State and Regionals were not held this year due to Covid. 


The winners… drumroll, please… were a team of 3rd graders, with the team name Book Battlers. Congratulations to the winning team, and a big round of applause for all the students who participated!


Our deep appreciation goes out to OBOB coordinators Margo Litwin, Kelly Post-Lewis, and Lubna Qureshi, as well as team parent-coaches, volunteer scorekeepers and moderators, and our school library team of Elizabeth and Giulia!
