     Readers Rally Image

    Readers Rally is a reading quiz bowl style competition for students in 4th and 5th grade at Parsons. Students read books from a pre-determined list and answer questions about those books. Elementary school teams use a list of 15 books, chosen by a GCPS committee, and compete against other elementary schools in our county. Each Gwinnett County school may send one team of ten players or less to the Readers Rally event, and our team will be chosen prior to Thanksgiving break. Being involved in Readers Rally at Parsons ES is a wonderful enrichment opportunity for our amazing readers. Students who are interested in joining the Readers Rally team should visit the Media Center Website/Parsons ES Media Center eCLASS page for the book list and to sign up. Students also need to return a signed parent letter to participate in Readers Rally.
