The first ever "Are You Ready For Some Footsteps" regular season has come to a close. Our four playoff teams have been decided and it came down to the wire for the last spot. The first and second seeds came out of the season undefeated, while the 3rd and 4th spots came down to the total words read during the competition, as we had six teams with a 6-1 record. Congratulations to all our teams for participating, it was a great season. Big Congrats to Hurd Barrington Elementary for sweeping the four playoff spots!
The one week Super Bowl Read Off will begin when schools return from Thanksgiving Break on Monday December 2, and run through Sunday December 8. When the dust settles on Monday morning a Super Bowl Champion will be crowned.
