Our 4th and 5th grade students have the opportunity during the 2017-18 school year.  Students can begin reading over the summer of 2017 and meetings will begin right away in the fall during lunch hours. 

These meetings help students prepare for the state-wide competition that is held in the spring. Students will work with teachers who help them learn how to formulate questions and identify key words in each of the books selected for the competition.  Students then compete against others throughout the state by answering questions about the books.
