We had a great practice before the fall break. Team members should read two books and write questions for this week's practice. You should also study the question packet we handed out last week. We'll spend a good part of our practice drilling this week.
Send in your questions via email to me and I'll compile another set of questions. We'll be adding up the points you scored in practice last week. Some of you are really racking up the points. The Natus will be providing snack and we will set up another snack schedule for October. We look forward to seeing you then.
Would you like to recognize your child's birthday by donating a book to our media center? Fill out the form below and send in a check for $10. A few weeks before your child's birthday, we'll bring him/her to the media center to pick out a book from a selection of brand new books from a recent book order. We'll place a Birthday Book Club bookplate inside the front cover honoring your child on his/her birthday. Then, your child will be given the opportunity to present his/her new book to the media center on our local Fox5 Shallowford Falls morning broadcast. All proceeds will be used to purchase new books and materials for our media center. We appreciate all you do to support our program.
The new GCBA books have been chosen. Click on the link below to see them! All of you third and fourth grader super-readers, get ready for next year's Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl team at Shallowford Falls by checking them out right now!
