    Fall 2022 High School Reading Competition Team - Thursday, November 17, 2022 at Bellwood-Antis School District


    Welcome to the Middle School Reading Competition Team! If you are in 7th or 8th grade and you like to read, you are eligible to join! Grab a friend that also likes to read, and talk to Mrs. Fabyanic!


                                                      reading competition

    Team Member Requirements & Information:

    1. Each team member reads books from the Reading Competition Reading List, re-read/review those books closer to the competition date, and review the printed quizzes/summaries! (Most of these books are available on line as read alouds/YouTube recordings!)

    2. We will have voluntary lunch meetings on Fridays @ Noon in the Library beginning in September.

    3. We will hold a voluntary after-school practice on Thursday, October 27, 2022 from @ 3:20 - 4:30 in the Library for those able to attend.

    You, our Berlin MS Reading Competition Team members will represent BBSD well and enjoy meeting students from other area school districts participating in this event! Despite the competition with questions being asked about the 30 books on the reading list, the students rise to the challenge and have a great time!


    Are you ready to have a good time reading? YES?! Then join our ranks for the Fall Reading Competition!

    Dog-gone good time!     


    Here is what you need to do:   

         1. Sign up in the Elementary/MS Library.

         2. Take the book listing to keep track of what books you are reading.  

                                            Sign up

          3. Choose a book to read, sign your name by it on the MS charts the Library, and check it out of the Library.  

    *We need to have at least 1 person reading each book on the list (better if there are 2 people per book)!

    *Pick a book that hasn't been read by a team member yet!          Fill out permission slip                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

          *READ, remember what you read, and ENJOY!       Reading

             (I am not requiring you to take notes or write questions, but if those kinds of things help you to remember, don't hesitate!)

          *You can touch base with Mrs. Fabyanic (@ 8:05 - 8:20 a.m.) in her room any morning.

             (E014 - Elementary Building, 3rd/4th grade hallway, pass the gym and elevator, down the steps, and I am the third

              room on the left side!)      



    I would love to see YOU on our fantastic BBMS Reading Competition Team!
