Each year schools from all over Chester County compete in a quiz-style competition. Children read books from a pre-selected list and are quizzed as a team and earn points. Teams are awarded ribbons at the end of the competition. It is a great event with only winners. Pickering Valley Elementary would like to put at least 3 teams in the Spring competition.
The criteria for your child to participate on one of the PV teams are as follows:
*Must be 4th or 5th grader for the current school year
*Must read 20 books from the attached list by May
*Must attend scheduled morning meetings. During these meetings, children will practice strategies used during the competition and will quiz each other on the books.
* Must attend the official Chester County Reading Olympics competition in Spring. (Date yet to be selected)
This is a great way to encourage reading. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call the library.
