Deer Creek OBOB

CALLING ALL 3-5 GRADERS!!!! We are so excited to announce that Deer Creek will be doing OBOB, Oregon Battle of the Books, again this year. Obviously, things will look different than in years past but we are looking into ways to still make it fun and engaging for all of you. We are working out the details so keep looking for announcements but start reading TODAY!!!! For those who don't know much about OBOB, you can check out the state website at Basically students read books, we have book clubs and quizzes based on the books, students form teams (we can facilitate this) and compete against other Deer Creek teams with questions about each book provided by the state. Once again, for now all students need to do is start reading! Deer Creek library has all of the books and students will be able to check them out. Click on the link for more information on checking out books from Deer Creek.

You can also reserve and pick up the books from the local libraries. Questions? Contact the school librarian, Ms. Cunnington at or Heidi Bruno at
