Silver Beach
Sasquatch Superbowl

Enthusiasm will be high as students read and practice for our annual competition!   The list of this year’s nominees is below.  Fourth and fifth graders who love to read and  like a little competition may self select, form teams and divide up the books to read.

Mrs. Cleary will introduce the competition and more final details early this winter. Practice sessions and quizzes will most likely be available starting in January, with culminating school and city-wide competitions in April.  This is a fairly independent activity that the kids self  manage on their own.
