To Buzz or Not To Buzz

Saturday was our County Reader's Rally. Our school system is huge with over 100 schools. Over 80 schools sent teams to compete in the "Rally." Our school team has been preparing since last May. Our fourth and fifth grade students read 20 books from a list of specific books and have been practicing questions from the books to prepare for the Rally. The competition was fierce in our division. We did win our Division and participated in the Quarter-Finals. Our kids did a fabulous job in that round and will compete in the Final Four on Thursday. The competition will be taped and aired on the School System television channel. This group of students have been a joy. Several were on our team last year. My favorite part of the competition day is spending time with the families. Moms, Dads, Grandparents, younger siblings, teachers, our administrators were all their to encourage our students. Keep your fingers crossed for us as we prepare for our competition on Thursday!
