Great HRRB Competition and End of Season Party!

We had a great time at our CCSD HRRB competition this year. Our students did an amazing job and represented Acworth so well at South Cobb HS.

The participants and the coaches had an end of season the week after the competition. We enjoyed the students so much! These are reader leaders at Acworth!

Reading Bowl Team Meets on Wednesdays!

It’s official! We will be having an HRRB Team this year for the 2019-2020 school year. Typically, we begin meeting this month and will meet weekly until the January competition. Fourth and fifth grade students are members of our team.

Qualities we are looking for:

  • AVID READERS: students with book going all the time!
  • BOOK TALKERS: students that talk about their books with anyone and everyone!
  • MOTIVATED READERS: students who pick up a variety of books and read them cover to cover!

If you are interested, please let your teacher know or contact Mrs. Clay. We will have an information meeting soon in the LC for all interested students.

The reading list is below for this year.

The Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl Team is a group of highly motivated readers that come together and compete against other Cobb County Elementary Schools. 

Students that join our group are usually recommended by teachers as “big time” readers—always with a book in their hands! The book list that students read from is the Georgia Book Award List from the current year. This year, there are 10 books on the list. Team members will be responsible for reading as many from the list as possible!


2019 Competition was Super Exciting!

Our HRRB Team this year did a spectacular job finishing with a tie for 5th place with 30 school participating. We could not have been prouder of them. Our NEW trophy is located in the trophy case in the front hallway of the building—Special thanks to our PTA for funding our fabulous team t-shirts! We had an incredible show of support from parents, teachers and administration at the competition. Thanks to all of our supporters this year!!!
