Lakeridge Reading Challenge winner, Islander boys academic champs | School briefs
Lakeridge team is Global Reading Challenge winner
On February 26th, fourth-grade teams from West Mercer Elementary, Lakeridge Elementary and St. Monica’s competed in the district finals of the Global Reading Challenge held at the Mercer Island Library.
Each team read the same books, and were asked about specific details of each book. There were three rounds of questions, with 8-10 questions each round. For every question, the teams would submit their answer in writing.
After the three rounds, Lakeridge was crowned as the champion of the District by a slim margin.
The Lakeridge team will go on to compete in the regional finals against the champions of Bellevue and Issaquah on March 12.
