Our first announcement for the Olympic Reading Challenge was from Emma M. in sixth grade. She shared with us details about the equipment used in alpine skiing. We also heard about several famous skiers to watch for at the Olympics later this week, including Ted Ligety! In 2010, Ted came in 5th in the super-combined race. Also look for Bode Miller (who won GOLD in 2010 for the super combined!) and Jacqueline Wiles. Jackie is a high school student from Oregon, and this is her first Olympics.

Keep up the great reading, and turn in those minutes!
Help us to Read for the Gold this February! By keeping track of all of the reading that you do between Feb. 1 and Feb. 28, we can work to read 120,000 minutes as a school. Last winter, we read for just over 118,000 minutes. If we meet our goal this year, we will set a new school record. You can get the paper forms from the library, or just click on “Olympic Reading Challenge” at the top of the screen. That way, you can just type them in online! We can do this – be a part of the Sippican Olympic Reading team!
