On Wednesday, March 28, 36 Gregory elementary students headed to Burke to compete in Reading Olympics. To make the Reading Olympics team, everyone must read 10 books in a certain amount of time, pass the tests on all of them, and take notes for each chapter.

Gregory took two teams from 2nd and 5th grades and one from every other grade 3-7. In total Gregory brought home four trophies. 2nd grade red won third place with Savannah Lozano, Mitch Zimbelman, Andrew Lutt, George Timanus, and Sadie Carlson; 3rd grade won third with Aiden Frasch, Isaac Hull, Regan Graesser, Kayde Peabody, and Kamre Peabody; and 6th grade won third with teammates including Mya Determan, London Flakus, Kaydence Klein, and Morgan Opbroek. They received one second place trophy in 4th grade with Dani Timanus, Asia VanDerWerff, Addison Stukel, Madisan Graber, Lincoln Juracek, and Ella Sperl.

“We did well this year, and I am very proud of the students’ commitment to read,” said Holly Whitney, who is coach of Gregory’s team.
