Be a Champion and Read Contest

Be a Champion and Read is sponsored by the Alabama Education Association.  Students read six reading-level appropriate books and complete a reading log.  When they turn in their completed reading log with Alabama or Auburn marked, their team gets a point on our bulletin board in the main hallway.  Students will also be entered for the Grand Prize-- a trip to the Iron Bowl with two guests, sideline passes, and pre-game activities!
