Link to the 2021-2022 Middle School Reading Olympic List

The Reading Olympics program is designed to encourage children to read more by helping them discover the joy and excitement of reading and talking about books. Using a team format, students get to share with their friends the challenge of growing the quantity of books they read as well as increasing their exposure to a variety of writing styles and topics.

Teams of 8-16 students, over several months, will read books from a prepared list. The book lists include 45 titles, created to be appropriate to both the team’s age and reading levels, and are updated annually by a multi-county group of teachers and librarians. The students will meet regularly to share and discuss their interpretations and comprehension of what they have read.
