PHILADELPHIA – Students from Pope John Paul II Regional Catholic School in Philadelphia were successful at the 2010 Reading Olympics held at the Community College of Philadelphia April 30 and Temple University May 4. One team of seventh and eighth-graders and two teams of fourth and fifth-graders took home blue ribbons. The students effortlessly answered questions and received high scores in the three rounds of questioning. The 2010 Reading Olympics was run by Philadelphia Reads, the Free Library of Philadelphia, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and the School District of Philadelphia.
