Thanks to Kelly for the photo – the last semifinal round of Global Reading Challenge competition at the Seattle Public Library downtown is over, and this one turned out to have FOUR West Seattle elementary schools competing – Gatewood, Highland Park, Roxhill, and West Seattle. Kelly reports that all four tied for 3rd place (along with 2 other schools) but that’s not high enough to advance to the finals. So as far as we’ve heard, Arbor Heights Elementary‘s Super Ultimate Nerdy Ninjas are the only West Seattle team headed to final competition on March 18th (also at the Central Library).
2:08 PM UPDATE: Confirmed with Mary Palmer from SPL, the lineup for the citywide final (just in case you’re wondering about the non-WS teams against whom AH will be competing) – their schools & team name (each school had multiple teams in the early round, with intraschool competition):
Marvelous Mind Masters
The Little Team That Could
Super Ultimate Nerdy Ninjas
