Earning Olympic-sized honors through reading

With team names like “Chapter Raptors” and the “Novel Nifflers,” 253 area middle school students organized into 21 teams competed recently at Lower Macungie Middle School for top honors in reading comprehension at the Reading Olympics.

Organizers gave each team a list of 45 books to read.

Team “Columbian Book Weasels” from Orefield Middle School placed second. Each member of the team received a copy of “Refugee” by Alan Gratz. English Language Arts Teacher Robin Roberts sponsored the team.
