Redmond Battle of the Books
Redmond Battle of the Books (RBOB) is a district level elementary school reading competition for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students. Students read 3 books from the booklist below to qualify to participate on a team. Teams are formed in early December to allow time for reading books that may not have been read yet by team members. In January and February, teams meet weekly during the school day to battle each other by answering questions from books on the list. The top two teams from Tom McCall will battle in a school championship at an assembly.
