EBOB is a reading program for students in grades 3rd-5thgrade. The purpose of the EBOB is to encourage reading and expose students to quality literature.  There will be a county wide competition either late March or early April, 2014.  The competition is similar to a quiz bowl competition.   Students read the books and demonstrate their expertise and test their knowledge of the  facts and events in the books they have read.  During each practice students will compete in teams to correctly answer questions. 

Please visit the Media Center calendar for a list of the tentative practice dates.
