Real Bulldogs Read

Real Bulldogs Read
Honored GuestsMarch 2, 2017 was the kickoff for the 2nd annual Real Bulldogs Read program that encourages everyone in the community to read every day from 5:00 until 5:30. We have a reading patrol who will be out and about in every Macon County town on each Tuesday during the month of March to catch readers and award them with prize tickets. 

We were honored to have special guests from the local, state, and national Forestry pageants visit our school. US National Miss Forestry, Ashley Rodgers and US National Teen Miss Forestry, Ashley Moore both spoke to the students and parents assembled about their personal experiences with reading and how it has helped them become better students, speakers, and competitors in the business world. Joining them to support our reading initiative were US National Pre-teen Miss Turpentine, Lily Barfiled; Macon County Miss Forestry, Kaitlyn Albritton; Macon County Teen Miss Forestry, Bailee Johnson; and Bleckley County Pre-teen Miss Forestry who is also the Miss Macon County Middle School, Shania Thomas. 

Additional special guests included a few members of the State Champion MCHS Football team, 2016-2017 teachers of the year, Macon County Retired Teachers Association members, and several local government officials. 

Entertainment was provided by The Boyz, who played and sang during the program and afterwards during the reception. Members of the band include Jhai'Tarriance Banks, Curtis McCants, Caleb Forbes, and Trevor Jackson. Additionally, the Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl teams for the middle and elementary schools recited poetry and sang an uplifting song for the audience. The high school presented a reader's theater selection of The Paper Bag Princess adapted from the story by Robert Munsch. Readers for the high school were Malik Swafford, Shania Swafford, Jerkaylin Walters, Leslie Levaro, and Latrecia Jones.  

The evening ended with refreshments and socializing. Thank you to all who participated, and we hope to see you ALL reading every day!
