Eisenhower Science and Technology Leadership Academy will participate in the 2014 MontgomeryCounty Reading Olympics.
The goal of the Reading Olympics is to increase students' reading for enjoyment and increase reading skills. 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.
Students will be asked to sign up to join the competition in early November 2013. Let the reading begin!
Datesfor the competitions will be determined early 2014.
