• Battle of the Books

     

    BOB is a reading competition for 4th and 5th grade students to compete against teams from other elementary schools in Currituck County. Mrs. Haskell is the team coach along with classroom teachers.  Students who are interested should get a list of books from the library or ask their teacher.
    Students who are working towards this goal can be a part of our book talk lunches. We will meet most Tuesdays throughout the 2nd and 3rd 9 weeks during lunch.
    Guidelines:
    Team members are responsible for reading the list of books below.  There are a total of 10 books.  Students should have 7 of them completed by January 31st.   AR tests are to be taken on these books as well.  A score of 85% or higher is expected.
     
     
     This competition will be held at Griggs Elementary on April 13th, 2017. 
     
    After School practice will begin in March.
