Please check out the Great Book Detectives tab to learn all about this great reading challenge for 4th-9th grade students at AAU-F.
Today, September 31, was our first meeting. It was great to see so many readers in one room having fun. We drew pigs, learned how BOB will work, had a snowball fight, and checked out BOB books.
Next week the meeting is geared toward the 2nd-4th grade BOB participants.
It isn’t too late to join BOB. Unlike the other clubs, BOB is a one-time fee for the entire year. The club form is available via a link on the school Facebook page, our web page, in the office, or this link: http://farmington.ascentutah.org/?page_id=424.
If you have questions, e-mail is the best route since I am either working with students or working at our other campuses.
I’ll be seeing you at the next BOB meeting.
