Reading Bowl Competition 2016 Bolton Academy Students Soar!

For more than five months, the Bolton Academy Reading Bowl team, comprised of 4th graders: Ally Brown, Delaney Garner, Jaden Hope, Jill Yoder & 5th graders: Mather Atkinson, Sarah Anne Hamilton, Riley Teed, Zane Jones and Reed Jorgensen, have spent countless hours reading up to 16 books in preparation of the BOWL! The team spent every Wednesday afternoon with their BA coaches, Mr. Emmanuel, Ms. Peete and Mr. White, to prepare for the tournament. The Team had lots of fun every week, especially making Mr Emmanuel crazy with messes in the media center!

These students spent this past Saturday morning competing with 29 other elementary schools in the Annual Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl at Drew Charter School in East Lake. Our team did a tremendous job this year and beat Morris Brandon in round five! WOW! Please congratulate these students for a job well done. Many thanks to our coaches for being great READING role models, by supporting and encouraging our students to READ!
