BOB Teams

2017-18 REGISTRATION IS OPEN NOW THROUGH NOV. 15 - scroll down to registration link

Each BOB team is composed of 4 members. (There is room for an alternate team member, who may or may not participate in battles.)  Members can be any student at Abernethy Elementary in 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade. Teams can be mixed ages, grades and gender. Teams are assembled independently by students and parent coaches; they are not assigned by anyone. Often times students will begin talking with peers about who is on who's team. This can get confusing, so it's helpful to organize your team as early as possible! 

Please encourage kids to find teammates among their peers as the first approach.  Closer to November, if you need help finding or forming a team, please provide your child's name, grade, and teacher in an email to

Battle of the Books registration for 2017-18 is open until 11/15.  Please ensure your team is fully formed with a designated adult coach before registering. Coaches complete one registration form per team and pay the $25 fee.  The funds go directly to purchasing extra sets of OBOB titles for the Abernethy Library.  Open the link below and follow the steps!
