Students can attend one of two meetings on each date - either
7:30 a.m. or 3:10 p.m.
Meetings take place in the library.
The goal of the
Reading Olympics is to increase students’
reading for enjoyment. Students collaborate with their teammates
to read forty to fifty books that have been selected by a
committee of librarians, reading specialists and classroom
teachers. These professionals read the books and write
questions, which teams of students answer during the
competition. The Olympics are primarily a celebration of reading
rather than a contest. All participants are awarded ribbons.
Since the teams generate much excitement about this event, the
experience is rewarding for everyone involved.
