Reading Contest

NCS has a Reading Contest each year.  Students compete against themselves, not others.   If the student reads the required number of books from fiction and non-fiction by the deadline each year, they will receive a trophy at Awards Night.

Reading Contest Books in the school library are marked on their front covers with colored dots. Each size/color of dot is for a particular level. Check the chart on the wall to determine the levels you need.

If you would like a copy of the book list for a particular level, you may request it from the school office for $5 copy fee. There are about 600-1000 books on each grade level’s book list.

Students can read more non-fiction than required.

Students can read higher grades than their assigned grade without checking with the office. Those wishing to read from lower grades must get permission from the Principal.

Students may read no more than 2 books from the same author.

Reading Contest books can be used for the Pizza Hut Reading Contest.

Forms and lists are available in the school library in the file box.
