In order to participate, students should read 4 books during the summer vacation from the following selection:

Students will be quizzed on these books and teams will be formed. During the school year, the teams will read the remaining of the 12 books. In the Spring the 4th and 5th grade will compete in a friendly trivia contest and the team with the most correct answers will be Reading Champion!
