John Wetten students hold book battle in Gladstone
Fifty John Wetten fourth- and fifth-graders participated in the Oregon Battle of the Books, this year. Library assistants Julie Kempster and Nancy West organized the event, where several teams competed to answer questions about 10 books from the statewide list.
"Students were very excited about Battle of the Books," said volunteer coordinator Theresa Schmidt. "Children took the competition very seriously and were diligent about preparing."
The Gladstone/Oak Lodge Rotary Club provided T-shirts for the event.
