    This is a club for fifth grade students that love to read and are competitive!  We read from a list of 15 books given to us by GCPS Readers Rally committee, then in January we compete to decide upon the ten students that will represent Fort Daniel at the county competition.  Readers Rally is a quiz bowl type of competition where questions will be asked from each of the 15 books. Applications will be given out to fifth graders the first week of school and are due by the end of the second week.  The club meets during the 5th grade lunch and recess time, so students must be willing to give up one of their recess times.  We meet weekly from August through February, with two after school practice sessions for the students going to the county competition.
