Clayton Elementary Places Third in Helen Ruffin Divisonals

CANTON, GA -- The Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl team from Clayton Elementary School in Canton placed first at the county level, second at the regional level and officially finished in third place at the divisional level on Saturday, Feb. 26.

The students competed against teams from all over Georgia and were thrilled to place third. Helen Ruffin herself even stopped by to congratulate them for a job well done.

Ruffin, a retired media specialist with DeKalb County Schools, began her namesake reading bowl as a way to get her students engaged with age-appropriate literature. The idea quickly spread to other school systems, turning the game show-style program into an annual statewide event.
