Bancroft Reading Olympic Teams Challenge Faculty

Bancroft Elementary School’s fifth grade Reading Olympic teams have been competing against the school’s faculty team to sharpen their reading skills. They compete to simulate what the actual competition will be like when they go to the Chester County competition this May. Having another team to compete with strengthens their ability to work as a team and increases their love of reading. All the competitions have been extremely helpful and have provided many opportunities for unique experiences with their teachers. In order to assist the faculty team, the teachers are given special snowflake ‘lifeline’ cards they can give to a student not competing that day to answer for them. This not only helps the faculty, but also the students.
