On Monday, March 5, our Global Reading Challenge team, Mysterious Benaltabe Society, took first place in their division at the city semi-finals. Seattle Public Library coordinates this program, choosing 10 books for teams to read, read, and READ! Competing against nine other elementary schools from around Seattle, MBS endured three rounds of tough questions, missing none! Congratulations to our distinguished team of 5th graders: Alexandra, Charlotte, Clara, Djuna, Justin, and Kian!
Our savvy team proceeds to the city finals, where they will face seven other schools, on Tuesday, March 20 at 6:30 PM at the downtown branch of Seattle Public Library. Community is welcome to attend this exciting event in the auditorium. Best wishes as Mysterious Benaltabe Society prepares.
