Reading Olympics, What is It?

 The goal of Reading Olympics is to increase student’s reading for enjoyment and their reading skills. Students work in teams to read forty books that are selected by a committee of librarians, reading specialist, and classroom teachers. On the night of the competition, students will answer questions about the books that they read. These questions are written by the committee. The Olympics is a celebration of reading rather than a contest. The experience is rewarding for everyone!

 The students will meet over the next few months after school to learn the format, share about the books read, and practice answering questions as a team. Please check this page regularly as we will post updates and links to resources for the team.
