Another Successful Year for GRC

IMG_0861We had a very successful Global Reading Challenge this year!  Everyone showed great effort and sportsmanship! We are so very proud of all 42 4th and 5th grade students that participated. A special congratulations goes to the “Best Team Ever”! All your hard work paid off and you represented us well at the District Challenge.

The Global Reading Challenge is a cooperative effort between King County Library System and local public school districts. This is a Battle of the Books-style program that allows 4th and 5th graders across the county to work together as a team and challenge other schools to correctly answer questions about the selected books. Each year, King County Library System children’s librarians select 10 titles in a wide range of reading levels especially suited to the interests of young readers.
