The goal of the Reading Olympics is to increase students' reading for enjoyment. Students collaborate with their teammates to read forty to fifty books that have been selected by a committee of librarians, reading specialists and classroom teachers. These professionals read the books and write questions which teams of students answer during the competition. The Olympics are primarily a celebration of reading rather than a contest. All participants are awarded ribbons. Since the teams generate much excitement about this event, the experience is rewarding for everyone involved.
Safeties monitor hallways, escort our kindergarten students, help teachers in the bus rooms and at parent pick-up and assist students and the bus drivers with making sure our students stay safe. We are proud of our Blue Bell Safeties.
