    The Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl Team is a state-wide competition for all Georgia elementary, middle and high schools. Richmond Hill K-8 hosts two teams, one for grades 4 and 5, and one for grades 6,7,and 8. Team members read at least three books each and practice answering questions about those books. The competition is a game show format in which teams try to answer correctly the most questions about the books they read. This year, the competition will be held online.


    Teachers nominate students to be on the teams; however, interested students and students who have been on the teams in the past can contact Mrs. Husid if they would like to participate . Both face-to-face and virtual students may participate. Books will be delivered to students and support materials will be in Canvas. Any necessary meetings will be held in Microsoft Teams.
