Chester County Reading Olympics

  • This year, Glen Acres fifth graders will be invited to join our Reading Olympics team. Elementary schools throughout Chester County participate each year in this celebration of reading event. The goal of the Olympics is to increase the quality of books our students read for enjoyment and give them the opportunity to compete on a team in an academic event. All participants will receive a ribbon for their hard work and dedication to reading. The friendly competition is through the Chester County Intermediate Unit and you can find more information at the CCIU's Reading Olympics event site.

    Team members will be required to read 6-8 books (which the library will provide) from a pre-selected list of 45 books. We will start meeting in the library in late October once per week during fifth grade lunch. We will be discussing books they have read and quizzing each other about the stories.  

    If you have any questions, please feel free to email Rachel Karrmann (Librarian and building coordinator) at
