Perelman students recently participated in Reading Olympics, a countywide competition that encourages students to share their enthusiasm for reading. Students collaborate with their teammates to read 45 books pre-selected by a committee of librarians, reading specialists and classroom teachers.
Teams of dedicated fourth and fifth graders met weekly during lunch to discuss each book on the list and prepare for the competition. The goal of the program is to encourage a love of reading and to strengthen students’ skills.
On Wednesday, April 3, students engaged in a fun evening of competition, answering questions about the books. They participated in 3 rounds of questions, working collaboratively and accumulating points throughout the evening. All participants were awarded ribbons and were celebrated for their reading skills.
