Battle of the Books

Do you like to read?  Want to be part of a team and represent Thomasville High School in the North Carolina Battle of thebooks Books? 
What it is...
You and your teammates will read 16 designated books. Best practice is everyone reads all the books, but the team can also divide the books up.
During the BOB meets, you will be asked questions about what you have read. It is like a trivia game about books! Our school team will compete with other teams across North Carolina. 
Who can join...
Battle of Books is open to anyone. There are five to six members on a team.  If we have more interest, students will divide themselves into teams at THS and will compete to go to the BOB meets. School rules must be followed at all times. 
Sounds like something you'd like to do?  See Ms. Overcash in the Media Center.
