Grand Ridge Golden Thunderbolts win KCLS Global Reading Championship

Posted by Elizabeth Egan on 18 April, 2018

Exciting news from Grand Ridge Elementary! The Golden Thunderbolts, the Global Reading team from Grand Ridge, earned a championship victory in the King County Library System East Grand Challenge! They answered tricky and detailed questions to edge out teams at the Building, Inter-District, District, and Regional levels to win the Grand Championship! The Golden Thunderbolts have been training and competing since October and dedicated themselves to training during recesses and weekday mornings. Their hard work and commitment to reading and to their teammates helped these students earn their success. 

Congratulations go to: Faith J, Indi K, Clara M, Arshia M, Amanda D, Rosemary S, and Ethan B.

The Global Reading Challenge is a program sponsored by the King County Library System (KCLS) in which upper elementary students read fiction and/or non-fiction books and then compete in a quiz-bowl format based on these books.
