Readers Rally is a quiz bowl style competition for students in grades 4 – 12. Students read books from a predetermined list and answer questions about those books. Each Gwinnett County school may send one team of up to 10 players to the Readers Rally. Middle school teams read the books nominated for the Georgia Children’s Book Award each year. The list includes 15 books.
Gwinnett County Public Schools subscribes to over 30 different databases. These databases contain educational and academic resources in many subject areas. These databases are created with education and student use in mind. These are specifically designed for your student to be successful at finding authoritative, accurate information with ease.
It is the policy at Shiloh Middle for students to use these databases for research. The databases are accessible from any GCPS networked computer.
Students can access these at home through MY eClass. Passwords are no longer needed to access these at home. Locate the Online Research Library from the APPS tab.
