What do I have to do to join the lunch-time Helen Ruffin reading club at JMS?
- Parent permission. The club is free, but you must provide your own travel to the Saturday competition(s).
- Read at least 5 books and become “the expert.” The more books you read/study (some students read all 20!), the better your chances are of making the JMS Helen Ruffin team!
- You must attend practices and be available for the Saturday competitions. The top 8 students from grades 6-8 will be chosen for the competition team by the number of correct answers during practices.
What happens at the meetings? We eat lunch and discuss the books and practice quizzing. We use jeopardy-style buzzers to prepare ourselves for the competitions.
