Rimbey elementary students compete

At the beginning of February, Rimbey Elementary School began a school wide reading challenge called, “Reading Olympics”.

At the beginning of February, Rimbey Elementary School began a school wide reading challenge called, “Reading Olympics”. The objective of this challenge was to track how many minutes each student read at home during the month. Students recorded their minutes daily and on Mondays brought their results to the library to be tallied by Mrs. Coston.

Each week, the class that read the most minutes was awarded a free library period. The goal was that each class would read enough combined minutes to get their avatar from RES to Sochi, Russia. 60 minutes of reading, equaled 1 centimeter, so each class had to read a combined total of 9000 minutes because it is 9000km from Rimbey to Sochi.

The students took on the challenge with a great spirit of friendly competition and participation.  Altogether, the students of RES read over 160,000 minutes! With the winning class making it all the way to Sochi and back to Rimbey.

● The class with the most minutes read earned gold and a pizza party in the library went to Miss Ree’s class with 20,419 minutes.

● Silver – Mrs. Eadie’s class with 17 025 minutes read

● Bronze – Mr. Peck’s class with 15 340 minutes read

● 1P – Most class participation

Individual prizes were given to the students who read the most for each grade.
