What is reading olympics
What is Reading Olympics?

  • Reading Olympics is a club in which we read books from a set list of 44.

  • In late March – early April, we go to a competition, usually at Wissahickon High School, and answer content-based questions from the books.

  • Each question is worth one point and the goal is to have fun with your peers and make new friends.

  • This year, in order to have all the books read by at least one person, we will each pull a book at random from a hat. This book is your book for the week. If you pull a book that you have already read, please place that slip back in the hat and draw again.


  • Our full club meetings will occur on the first Monday of each month leading up to the competition. We will add meetings if we feel it is necessary.

  • During each meeting, it is expected from each member to share important details about the book that they have read for this meeting. In addition, a summary of the book is to be submitted to the Wikispace page!


  • A number of our books are located in the IMC here at the high school

  • Lets go down to the IMC to see!
