The United States Marine Jazz Ensemble out of San Diego visited Creswell High School to the delight of students and staff alike.

Worth a Read.

Congratulations Readers!

Creswell OBOB is booming! Two teams battled at CHS this year, four at CMS, and a whopping 14 teams will be battling at Creslane this week for the right to go to regionals! And, for the first time this year, CHS is hosting the Region 3 North high school regional tournament on Feb. 21. It’s a lot of work, but it will also be a lot of fun. If you’re interested in helping with the tournament, you can sign up here [Link]

What is the Oregon Battle of the Books?

The Oregon Battle of the Books, affectionately known as OBOB (pronounced Oh-Bob) to those who participate, is a competition where kids form teams to demonstrate their knowledge of a selected set of books chosen by the state OBOB committee.

Oregon Battle of the Books mission is to encourage and recognize students who enjoy reading, to broaden reading interests, to increase reading comprehension, promote academic excellence, and to promote cooperative learning and teamwork among students.

It’s all about kids reading books that they may normally not read, working in teams, and getting fired up in the spirit of healthy competition!
