Hallowell: Reading Olympics


Reading Olympics Forms

Reading Olympics

Each year, students in 4th and 5th grade students are invited to take part in a county-wide celebration of reading by participating in Reading Olympics! This event allows students of all reading abilities to share the excitement of reading with their friends by working together as a team to answer questions about the books that they have read from the pre-selected list of 45 books.
This year's event for Hallowell was held on March 22nd at Hatboro-Horsham High School starting at 5:30, ending at 8:10.
Below are some pictures from the 2016 competition:
