However, successful participants/teams read all or most of the books. Each team will determine their book reading strategy.
The competition will be held during the morning on March 20th in the gym. Each team will choose a team name and team attire for the day of competition. The top three team will advance to the district wide battle at Oakridge Elementary on March 23rd.

After the holiday break students will be writing block code to program Sphero Balls. Using iPads, the students will program the small robots to perform simple tasks such as rolling, turning and changing color, as well as more complicated tasks, such as maneuvering the ball through an obstacle course.
