Six teams of 4th and 5th grade students will be participating in QAE’s first annual Global Reading Challenge! 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. After several months of hard work and preparation, our teams are ready to compete in a quiz-show style contest at QAE! 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, please join us for our In-School Competition, which will be held in QAE’s cafeteria on Tuesday, Feb. 7th beginning at 8:30 a.m. We are so proud of all of our 4th and 5th grade participants!
