Welcome to Boones Ferry Primary PSS!  PSS (Parents and Staff for Students) is a non-profit organization that works just like a traditional PTA, but differs in that members are not required to pay dues and are not affiliated with a national organization.  We are an organization dedicated to enriching our children's school experience, creating a community within our school, and contributing to an environment of excellence where our children thrive.

What is Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB)?

OBOB is an exciting tournament of reading and trivia. Students form teams and collectively read a list of chosen books (listed on the back of this sheet). They’ll battle other teams in head-to-head trivia competitions based on the information in those books.

 How do I form a team?

·      You may assemble your own team of 1-5 members (though no more than 4 may battle together)

·      Team members must be in grades 3, 4, or 5, and may be mixed grade-levels within a team

·      Each team needs at least one adult volunteer to be the coach! (To help kids stay on track with their reading)

·      Turn in your team registration form to the front office by October 11th 

·      Teams will be required to provide a parent volunteer to lead 1-2 battles after school
