The sixth annual Reading Games registration will open on Monday, Oct. 23, 2017 at 8 a.m and close Sunday, Oct. 29 at 9 p.m. The Reading Games is a free and fun district-wide reading competition for District 58 students in grades 3-8. It will take place March 10, 2018 at O’Neill Middle School. The goal of the program is to introduce new genres of books to students and to get students excited about reading.

This year, organizers announce that they plan to accommodate every team that wants to participate. Given space constraints, two sites may be utilized and levels may be split into morning and afternoon events on March 10. Exact locations and timing of events will be announced after the final team registration in January. Parents and team leaders are asked to follow strict deadlines so that organizers can accommodate teams. Thank you for your flexibility and patience.

Each team will read 15 books from a pre-determined list chosen by the staff of District 58 and the librarians at the Downers Grove Public Library.

List 1 is geared for readers in 3rd – 5th grade.

List 2 is geared for readers in 5th – 8th grade.

Teams should be made up of five to eight students. They can be co-ed, all boys or all girls. Each team will need an adult team leader to register the team for the event, act as a point person for all communications and help their team prepare for The Games competition day.
