Champs was a group of children who were taught by Mrs. Pressey to work on their "R"'s and worked on Tuesdays in Thursdays in the library. Greg Heffley was part of this group. Greg and the other kids didn't pay attention and goofed off. Mom got frustrated that he wasn't learning much of his R's, so she hired a tutor to help Greg. After a few months, he could say his R's with no problem. But Greg still wants to stay at Champs. So he faked it Until he said three R's right in front of everyone.
