    Don't Underestimate The Power of Reading Our 4TH, 5TH, and 6TH grade advanced readers have been reading the 17 books nominated for the 2016 Georgia Children's Book Awards to prepare to compete in the Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl. These students have read the most books and scored the most points in our class competitions and on Reading Counts quizzes. They will represent Brittin at our second Fort Stewart Reading Bowl that will take place at Diamond Elementary at 4:00 on Thursday, February 4. The Bowl will consist of three rounds with 10 questions each and should be over by 5:30. Our staff and families of team members are welcome to observe! The team that wins the district competition will qualify to compete in the Regional Bowl on Saturday, February 13, at Valdosta State University. The students have worked toward this goal since August and are extremely excited! We hope you share their en-thusiasm and can support their accomplishment with congratulations and attendance at the District Bowl.
