The semifinals of the Seattle Public Library‘s Global Reading Challenge are under way downtown – and we have our first word of a West Seattle team making it to the GRC’s finals: SPL’s Mary Palmer tells us the Super Ultimate Nerdy Ninjas from Arbor Heights Elementary did well enough today to advance to the March 18th final. One more West Seattle team has yet to have its semifinal round – that’s Roxhill, tomorrow.


  1. Well done Super Ultimate Nerdy Ninjas!!! Good luck on the 18th!

  3. Thanks, Kelly. We never heard directly from any school but Concord and Arbor Heights, despite putting out an all-call for info on GRC teams; I pinged SPL yesterday begging for info, and besides updating us on Concord (which competed yesterday but didn’t make it out of the semis), they mentioned AH and Roxhill. Good luck to The Mysteries! (And if anyone can tell us the name of Roxhill’s team, would love to include that too …) Tracy

  4. Congratulations to Arbor Heights! Congratulations also to Concord’s Black Mythical Mustangs–a team of all 4th graders who worked so hard and, even though they didn’t quite make the finals, are superstars!

  7. 10:30 semifinal round starting soon includes the Highland Park Mysteries, the Roxhill Sea Gals and the Hawk, the West Seattle Elementary Infinity, and the Gatewood Phantom Reading Booth teams (along with some non-WS schools)! Will try to get a picture!

  8. It gets better all the time! Thanks! Hadn’t heard about the WSE or Gatewood teams previously either, wishing you ALL the best of luck.

  9. Roxhill was part of a 6-way tie for third place (one wrong question behind second place).

    Way to go, SeaGals and a Hawk. I saw you smiling and having fun the whole time. And the reading you did was tremendous.
