Irvington Weekly Newsletter

March 10, 2023

Congratulations to all the OBOB teams at Irvington! This week we had the final battle in the Oregon Battles of the Books. 39 students read 16 books and battled it out over the past few weeks. The final two teams featured the Book Snakes from 3rd grade vs the Oh, Bobs from 5th grade. After a nail biter of a final, the Oh, Bobs will be representing Irvington at the regional tournament in a few weeks.

Congratulations, everyone!

Mr. G.
