The Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl is a tribute to Media Specialist Helen Ruffin. Elementary students who wish to participate must read and test on six to nine books. Every year this list changes, the books on the list are the Georgia Book Awards and there are seventeen books on the list to choose from. We are sending two teams with five members on each team with two alternates attending. To increase your chances of being selected to represent Pine Street Elementary in the Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl, the more books you read and test the better your chance.

The Yearbook Club is typically made up of 4th and 5th grade students who are proud representatives of our school. Students work with the Yearbook Sponsor to make decisions on the design of the yearbook and use Lifetouch's  website to create the school's yearbook.

Sci-App Team

The Science Assistant Program (SciAP) is designed for 5th grade students who are interested in learning more deeply about Science concepts, inquiry and the use of tools of Science. One goal of the program is for students to learn how to teach others about Science concepts and use of tools. SciAP Assistants could then be available to assist classroom teachers by providing their students with mini-lessons on proper usage of tools, such as triple beam balances and microscopes. Students will apply to become a SciAP assistant. Behavioral norms must be maintained in order to remain in the program and to be allowed to serve as a classroom assistant.
