Kimberly Elementary School

In 1985 Helen Ruffin, a media specialist from Dekalb County, began a game format competition so students from different schools had the opportunity to compete to test their knowledge of books nominated from the Georgia Children's Book Award program.  This competition is designed to inspire and encourage students to read.  This year marks the 16th annual county wide competition.  It will take place in January, 2017 and Kimberly students are participating.  Good luck to our Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl students!  We are cheering for you!  
Each student is responsible for reading the assigned books and participating in a discussion and practice quiz for each book.  We are in  need of additional copies of each book.  Please consider donating to purchase the books by clicking here.
