Battle of the Books (BOB)

The SJS Library sponsors the Battle of the Books (BOB) program for students in grades 3 - 8.  BOB is a volunteer reading incentive program. Students read books from their grade’s specific list, supplied by the Archdiocese of Atlanta, then practice and hold mock competitions during Library and Language Arts classes to demonstrate their abilities and to test their knowledge of the books they have read. The student competitions are similar in format to Family Feud or Whiz Kids.  Four students from each grade level, 3 - 8, will earn a spot on their grade’s team to represent SJCPS at the Diocesan wide competition each spring.
