    Reading Competition

    This year's Reading Competition will be held March 23, 2019.  We are beginning to form our team, so if you are in the 4th, 5th, or 6th grade, and you love to read, please come see Mrs. Dible in the library to sign up.  The reading list is in the library on the book cart where the competition books are kept, and it is at the bottom of this page .  We need 6-12 students to form a team, and we will need 2 parent volunteers on the day of the competition to serve as a scorekeeper and a moderator.

    This is my first year to coach a reading competition team, so if you have any experience (child or adult), please share your knowledge and tips with me.


    Information forms and permission slips need to be turned in by October 31.
