Due to interest and a successful test run the Bentonville Jr. High Quiz Bowl Club will again play QB games Tuesdays & Thursdays @~2pm. The rules have been modified as a favorable adaptation to our current environment. You must have video and audio capability when you enter the virtual game ‘meet,’ and a source of light (cellphone, flashlight, etc.) – Also, it’s a ‘free for all’ toss up battle (no teams).
A link for the game will populate on our Google Classroom. BYOP (popcorn), snacks, and a sense of humor. Fast wifi might also be a slight advantage! :-). Hypothesis will be tested.
Most importantly, to bring the ‘fight’ properly, the JHQB team is sponsoring a food drive to aid local food banks. Recently, there has been a surge of new families ( >50% in last four weeks ) needing assistance here in NWA and surrounding counties. Many are requesting help for the first time in their working lives.
Please bring any non-perishable items (canned goods, shelf-stable items) to the north entrance at Haas Hall Academy Bentonville. These items will be distributed to our local food banks aiding those in need. Please look for updates as we go forward with this drive. If you have any questions about how to donate or what is most in need please use this contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
