Yeti  2020
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 the same but the competition dates are different. During the contest, teams are asked questions about these books.

Competition dates:
4th Grade Columbia Contest: Monday, March 2nd,  Columbia Library, 1:00
4th Grade All District Contest: Thursday, March 12th, Lowell Elementary, 1:30
5th Grade Columbia Contest: Monday March 9th, Columbia Library, 1:00
5th Grade All District Contest: Thursday, March 19th, Northern Heights, 1:30

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?
Mrs. Copeland will make sign up forms available December 9th. For now you can form teams if you would like, or just start reading the books!
