Seventeen 4th grade teams representing Oxford’s elementary schools competed in Battle of the Books on April 15, 2014 at the Oxford High School Performing Arts Center. The program is a collaboration between Oxford Schools and the Oxford Public Library. The 4th graders read five books on their own time in preparation for the Battle. At the competition, they answered 15 trivia questions about the books. Congratulations to all the teams! We applaud you for your enthusiasm to read as we know it’s not an easy task to read five extra books during the school year. The Best Team Name winners were the Reading Rock Starz (OES) and the Best Costume winners were the Knowledge Nerds (OES).
