It's official READING OLYMPICS 2020 HAS BEEN CANCELED by the Bucks IU due to the coronavirus and safety of the public. See email from the RO director below:
Bucks County Reading Olympics Contacts,
In response to school closures and in an effort to be proactive, the 2020 Bucks County Reading Olympics have been cancelled. We will not be rescheduling the events due to the uncertainty of the next two months along with the detailed task of coordinating ten successful evening events throughout the county.
Holding local competitions: In an effort to honor the work that students have already put into reading, we will be releasing the questions to all participating schools so that you can organize local school competitions. We will also release all of the accompanying resources to support the organization of these local events. The questions and resources will be sent out next week.
Ribbons: We will be sending out participation ribbons to all schools.
In closing, I hope that you recognize that the benefits of Reading Olympics have already occurred in your schools. While the events give students something to work toward, the reading and peer interactions that have happened at the building level are the goals of the program. Please try to share this message with your students and volunteers who have put so much time and effort into this year’s Reading Olympics.
Pam DinanReading Olympics is a celebration of reading that encourages you to read some amazing young adult literature. The lists of books include "classics" and some brand new titles as well.
