Sasquatch Reading Challenge!

Who: This is an optional opportunity for ALL 4th-6th grade students.

What: Sasquatch Reading Challenge culminating with a celebration!

When: Students have until May 1, 2021 to complete the reading challenge.

Why: To promote reading, increase comprehension, expose students to a variety of books, help students set and attain goals, feel proud of their hard work and celebrate their success.

How it Works:

  • Students read and pass 10 AR quizzes from the Sasquatch, Young Readers Choice, or Otter (4th grade only) award book lists.
  • 4th grade students may read 4 Otter books towards their 10 books.
  • Students who complete the challenge will be celebrated for their accomplishment.

I encourage you to help your child with this challenge at home by reading aloud at least one of the titles. Students are also encouraged to check out copies from the public library (print, audio and digital) at
