    We meet weekly to discuss titles, play games and help each other become the best BOB competitors we can be!  Most often, meeting are held during lunch or immediately after school, starting in October. We welcome all readers.  if you are interested in joining us, join the Remind by texting @ghsbob22 to 81010  and start reading!  

    Many of the books are available via the Grimsley Destiny Discover, or in the library.  I will check out 2 BOB books per student.  If you are interested, email me at worrelj"at"gcsnc.com
