Yeti  2021
It’s a new season for the Yeti Challenge! This is a reading contest for 4th and 5th grade students in Bellingham elementary schools. For this event, students can form teams of 2-4 teammates. The book lists for both grades are linked below. During the contest, teams are asked questions about these books.

Our competitions will all be on Zoom this year. Here are the dates and times that are confirmed so far:

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?
We’ve been having a fun time meeting on Wednesday mornings at 9:00 to meet with teammates, talk about the books, and keep the stories fresh in our minds with some fun activities. Check your class Seesaw for an announcement from Mrs. Copeland with the Yeti Zoom meeting link.

When can teams sign up?
Before winter break starts is a good time to have your team signed
