On Saturday our MRA students competed at the Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB). Our students compete at two levels; the 3-5 graders and the 6-8 graders. For several months, these students have been reading and studying books, building teamwork skills, and encouraging each other. Several teams competed at our school battle and the winners moved on to the Regional Competition. Neither of our teams moved on to state, but they represented MRA with good sportsmanship, positive attitudes, and put up a good fight.
