Once a year students in grades K-5 have the opportunity to participate in our Annual King & Queen of Reading Competition. The competition was founded and is spearheaded by one of our community activists, Ms. Monroe. Students perform a research-based project on an informational topic of his or her choice. He or she will is expected to become an “expert” on the topic by reading multiple sources (texts) and creating a visual and oral presentation of what he or she learned. All participants present their presentations in front of a panel of judges who determines the winner of the King & Queen of Reading competition.
