Queen Anne Elementary is taking part in the Global Reading Challenge for the 4th year! Teams of 4th and 5th grade students have been working had to prepare for this quiz-show style contest at QAE! Among the goals of the GRC are to motivate children to read, develop teamwork and cooperative thinking skills, and have fun. Each year, students from across the city read up to 10 books selected by Seattle librarians and participate in weekly meetings to study these books with their teammates.
Our winning team will advance to compete with teams from other schools across the city. The program will end with an All-City Final that will take place at the downtown Central Library.
If your child is participating in GRC this year (or you just want to watch!), please join us for our In-School Competition, which will be held at QAE on Tuesday, Feb. 11th at 8:15am. We are so proud of all of our 4th and 5th grade participants!
See the Seattle Public Library GRC site for more information, including the list of books.
