Clue-Me-In: Clue-Me-In competition is held each May in Sultan Hall at Sultana High School. Clue-Me-In supports our district-wide emphasis on literacy for all students. Elementary Schools send teams of 4-6 Grade students to this annual event to compete in this “Jeopardy” type of literature competition. School T-Shirts or Colors are worn to show school spirit. Each grade level division is assigned a master of ceremonies who reads cards and scores correct responses. A scorekeeper is assigned to each game who reports total scores to the audience. Trophies and ribbons are awarded through an awards presentation at the conclusion of the evening’s event.
Schools who have earned a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place proudly display their Clue-Me-In trophy at their school during the upcoming year.
