• The Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl is a reading competition that was created by a librarian named Helen Ruffin. She wanted to foster a love for reading in all students. To participate in the reading bowl competition, a school will have to put together a team of 4th and 5th grade dedicated students that will read and be able to answer questions from the 2019 Georgia Book Award Nominees.   Below is a list of the titles for this year’s reading bowl.  If you are interested in joining the CAE Reading Bowl Team, please see Ms. Merriell, the Media Specialist.
