The Reading Games will be held on Saturday, February 25, 2023 at O’Neill Middle.
This is a district-wide program that was created by our very own Whittier teachers – Mrs. Gergits and Mrs. Krygeris!
The Reading Games is a free and fun reading competition for District 58 students in grades 3-8. The mission of the Reading Games is to encourage reading in Grades 3- 8, expose kids to different genres, series, authors, and topics, as well as foster teamwork and responsibility. All this occurs as teams of 5 – 8 kids led by a parent or other volunteer community member prepare for a fun competitive day of book trivia!
Students form teams and collaborate to read 12 books from one of two book lists. Lists are online now!
- List 1 is geared for readers in third and fourth grade.
- List 2 is geared for readers in fifth and sixth grade.
- Students in seventh and eighth grade who want to play should read from List 2.
Like prior years, The Reading Games hopes to accommodate every team that wants to participate and registers during the registration period.
Each team will need an adult team leader to register the team for the event, act as a point person for all communications and help their team prepare for The Games competition day.
In addition, each team will be asked to send a volunteer (aged 16 years or older) to The Games to help run the day.

Good luck to our DG58 readers as they uncover the magic within these books!
