Operation Read 2018

Elementary students gathered for a morning of fun, learning and putting themselves to the test at Operation Read. Over 300 readers from all 15 elementary schools (Avery, Belleaire, Bellevue, Bertha Barber, Betz, Birchcrest, Central, Fairview, Fort Crook, LeMay, Leonard Lawrence, Peter Sarpy, Twin Ridge, Two Springs and Wake Robin) arrived at the BPS Lied Activity Center, ready to answer questions about the Golden Sower books they have been reading and studying since the fall. The Golden Sower books are the Nebraska children’s choice award sponsored by the Nebraska Library Association.

It was Team 45 from Two Springs Elementary who brought home the traveling trophy at the end of the tournament. The top team from each school with the best score won Olympic-style medals. And, each school was able to take back a set of Golden Sower books for next year's competition thanks to the BPS Foundation.

All elementary schools were invited to participate. The maximum number of teams per school is six and the maximum number of members per team is five. Classroom teachers, librarians, reading teachers and paraprofessionals all helped coach teams. Students discussed the books and practiced answering questions mostly during recess and after school.

Operation Read is coordinated by Kari Schroder (high school librarian) and Deb Kendall (elementary librarian).

Special thanks to the Bellevue Public Schools Foundation for supporting this great opportunity for students!
