Summer Reading

Parents and educators know that summer reading and engaging in reading-related activities advances students' literacy skills, improving their retention during the summer months, and leading to increased academic performance when school resumes. Summer reading also helps students develop positive, life-long reading habits, and as reasearch has proven, the early development of summer reading habits helps establish the foundation for students' later success.

In order to foster an enthusiasm for reading this summer, our students will be introduced to exciting and interesting reading options by our school and local librarians. While enjoying GREAT books, our Summer Reading Program participants will have the opportunity to earn terrific prizes.
