The Bob Squad: What is It?
April 2, 2015
Bob Squad is a familiar club to the school. Most people just know the club is there, but not what it is or what it does. So here's a rundown.
As Mrs. Poulsen, one of the Bob Squad Leaders, puts it, “Bob Squad is a peer mentoring group of upperclassmen that are ambassadors for Central High School. They help with rising 9th grade visitation day in April by escorting middle school students on tours of the campus, answering questions, and being a friendly face. They also meet with those same students in August the Friday before school starts to help them find their classes and to be a mentor to those students. Members of the Bob Squad are sometimes asked to help out at Open House or other community events.”
To join, you have to fill out an information sheet and then attend the meeting. You also have to be passing all your classes with a C or higher and have no discipline problems To be able to participate in Eighth Grade Day, you must have proof of grades signed by your teacher.
Students in Bob Squad must be very comfortable with talking to new people and have to be willing to follow the rules. Also, you must be able to talk about Central in a positive manner.
If you are interested in joining, you need to submit your application to Ms. Troutman in Guidance.
