• Reading Olympics
    Dear Parents,

    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.

    Ms. Jessica Czerny
