Sasquatch Superbowl 2017
It’s a new season for the Sasquatch Superbowl! 4th and 5th grade students in Bellingham elementary schools can form teams of 2-4 teammates. The 4th grade teams read books chosen from those nominated for the 2017 Sasquatch, Towner, or Otter awards. 5th grade teams read the Sasquatch books as well as the nominees for the 2017 Junior Division Young Readers Choice award. We’ll hold a Columbia competition in the spring to see which two teams go on to the district level competition. Most importantly, we get to read some great books together!

Competition dates:
4th Grade Columbia Contest: TBD
4th Grade All District Contest: TBD
5th Grade Columbia Contest: TBD
5th Grade All District Contest: TBD

Who can participate?
4th and 5th graders

Can a 4th grader be on a team with 5th graders?
Yes, but they must compete in the 5th grade competition. 5th graders are not allowed in the 4th grade competition.

Do all 4th and 5th grade students do this?
No, this is an optional activity.

Will we meet as teams to practice?
This is an independent activity and for the most part, teams meet on their own time and organize themselves. Mrs. Copeland will announce some voluntary activities and meeting times later in the year.

When can teams sign up?
After winter break, a sign up form will be made available in the library. For now you can form teams if you would like, or just start reading the books!
