  • After-school Practice Dates

    Starting Tuesday, January 29th, we will hold practice in the library from 3:15-4:00. The following dates will not have practice due to NJHS meetings or my own absences:

    February 12

    March 12

    April 2 (I'll be out of the country)

    April 9th will be a practice date for those who can make it, even though it conflicts with NJHS.

    In-school Practice

    Regular Thursday practice sessions will continue weekly until the competition. We will decide on additional dates mid-February. 

    Happy Reading!

  • Our first practice will take place on October 31st during lunch/study hall/recess periods. Students should report to the library with their lunch so we can begin practice ASAP. For the time being, we'll have a dedicated weekly meeting date during the lunch/enrichment block; we'll decide this during our first meeting. Here's what you can expect:

    • A tour of our practice website, including login credentials*
    • Information about how to practice at home
    • Access to the Battle of the Books Google Classroom

    Additional weekly afterschool practices will begin in January or February. 

    By now you should have come by to see if you made the team! Please drop by my office if you are unsure.


    *MyBobTeam login credentials cannot be posted on a public page but will be made available in our Google Classroom.
