• Battle of the Books

    Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB) is a voluntary reading incentive program. At Abernethy, students in grades 3-5 are eligible to participate in teams of 4 or 5 students and at least one parent coach. Teams will meet together to divide work and prepare for battles, which will take place in late January and early February. Each battle consists of 16 questions all relating to a list of books chosen by the State OBOB committee.


    If your student is interested in participating, the first steps are to start reading the OBOB book list and start looking for potential teammates.


    Official information will be available at the Support Abernethy website.
