EASD will be joining the IU13 Reading Olympics event for our 4th grade students to grow their love for books. This event encourages children to read, explore a greater variety of books and engage in exciting conversations about books. Students will be part of a team of 8-12 students tackling the challenge of 45 books collaboratively. Olympians are making the commitment to work with their team to read books and meet a few times a month to prepare for the event. Each district is able to send ONE elementary school team, therefore, Ephrata will host its own playoff rounds in March to determine the teams representing the district in May. To help us get our teams up and running, please sign-up by November 19, 2018. Information will be distributed during 4th grade library classes. Please return paperwork to Mrs. Barnabei (Fulton and Highland) or Mrs. Lewis (Clay and Akron).
