January 13th our Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl team competed against almost 30 other elementary schools in Cobb County's reading quiz bowl. These outstanding boys and girls read approximately 20 challenging chapter books between August and January. The competition was stiff, but we came away feeling proud and accomplished! Thank you for the hard work Evelyn, Efren, Henry, Vivek and Chloe! And a special thanks goes to Ms. Taube and Ms. Kienker for helping make it all possible!
