Fifth Graders Put Principal to the Test

By  | 

Are you smarter than a fifth grader? Wednesday afternoon, the Bonham Elementary school principal was put to the test.

Bonham students read 1,000,000 pages in two weeks time, a quarter of those were read by the fifth grade class.

Wednesday, those accomplishments were recognized as the school hosted its own version of the hit TV show, "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader." In the local game, fifth grade students put the principal in the hot seat as he answered questions from actual Kindergarten through fifth grade tests.

Although Principal Ken Newbold put up a good fight, in the end he had to admit that he was not smarter than a fifth grader.
