Our first Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl Team practice will be Wednesday, August 27, from 2:30-3:30pm in Mrs. Fields' room. If you aren't quite sure, come to the first practice and see what you think. We'll explain everything in greater detail and you'll be able to hear from some of last year's team members how much fun we had. Looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday. If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Kelley in the media center.
We are purchasing new books for the media center very soon. Do you have an amazing book you'd like for us to have for checkout? Email Mrs. Kelley and let her know. It must be age appropriate for elementary school. We want to buy what you want to read!
Our great readers are now Cobb County champions after winning the Cobb County Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl on Saturday, January 18. All nine of our team members were great competitors and displayed the best manners and sportsmanship at the bowl. We're all so proud of the way you represented our school. The next bowl will be on February 1 at the University of West Georgia in Carrollton. Great going, foxes!
