Closing Ceremonies

The games are over, and they were the most successful games ever!  As a comparison, we read twice as many minutes this  year as last year!  Every single pod read more  minutes than last year, and our overall school participation went from 24% to 48%.  Taken all together this means WE WON THE DISTRICT COMPETITON!  Last year Gruening took the crown out of our hands, but now it's ours again!

This year 20 students finished the race and read all seven genres, with 25 students reading five or more genres.  All 25 students listed above will be invited to the ice cream party next Friday, December 11th.  The top three readers also get Barnes and Noble gift cards.  Congratulations to all these students for reading so much!

In a team competition that went all the way to the end, Super Nova read more minutes than Vega, BUT the winner is actually determined by how many minutes are read per person (to account for the uneven team sizes) and in that case the Golden Book Award goes to Vega!  Congratulations Vega!
