Simmons Elementary LibGuide: Reading Olympics

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 levels 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 Reading Olympics book list.
