Congratulations to Ms. Polly Henderson K5 class at Hodges Elementary School! Ms. Henderson’s class was recognized as a 2019 S.C. READBowl State Champion in the Primary School Division! Ms. Henderson’s class was among the 90,000 classes across the country that participated in the competition.
READBowl is a nationwide reading competition for PreK-8th grade classrooms.
