Last night we reported that West Seattle’s Sanislo Elementary made it into the citywide finals of the Seattle Public LIbrary‘s Global Reading Challenge, and then added the word this morning that Concord has too. Now we have word from Roxhill Elementary‘s head teacher Christopher Robert that Roxhill is also in the finals – he shares the photo above, and the report:
Roxhill joins Sanislo and Concord in representing West Seattle well in the Global Reading Challenge! Nine schools participated in one of the semifinals today. John Muir placed first, and Roxhill went into the lightning round with Graham Hill to be the second finalist from that semifinal round (after having gotten 29 out of 30 correct). Roxhill won the lightning round to advance, along with John Muir, to the finals on March 29! Also competing in this semifinal round was Gatewood, Highland Park, Wing Luke, Olympic Hills, Madrona, and Leschi. Way to go, Roxhill!
Roxhill’s representatives are Joshua, Salma, Shareena, Emily, Kelli, Jasmine, and Trinidy, photographed with the school’s Golden Apple Award-winning librarian Pat Bliquez. (P.S. Roxhill mom Lisa also asked us to be sure that the student coaches are credited too: Miarra, Mulualem and Crystal.) The finals are at the Central Library downtown on March 29th.
