Reading Olympics Team Scores Big

Congratulations to our 5th grade Reading Olympics team of Frances FioRito, Rosemary Hicks, and Christiana Kappe for taking 2nd place in the Fall Competition! Teams from 12 schools in Oak Park & River Forest took part in the competition. It was a close competition and our team lost by just a single point!

The Reading Olympics competition is open to 5th grade students from local public and private schools. There are two competitions each year, with one team of three students representing each school. Teams read nine books per competition and are asked a variety of questions about the books in order to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the content.

Way to go, Bearcats!!
