Summer Reading Initiative (K-2)
BLAST OFF – BOOKS TAKE YOU OUT OF THIS WORLD
We would like to wish everyone a safe and exciting summer break and look forward to seeing all of our students return to school on August 21st. It is very important that students consistently spend time reading over the summer break so they can continue to use the literacy skills learned during the school year. To help encourage students to read, we have created a summer reading program each year.
This year, students are encouraged to read a minimum of 250 minutes and complete a reading log. As part of the “Blast Off with Reading”, students are encouraged to explore learning through a space theme (i.e. visit Children’s Museum, Star Gazing, Phases of the Moon). Students can return the extra challenges to receive a special Rocket Ship pen. Students can return the reading log next school year for special recognition and prizes. Each student has been given a reading log with information on the summer program but you can also download the reading log below if you misplace it over the summer.
Students moving to Linntown next year will participate in the Linntown reading program. Thank you for your continued support and enjoy your summer adventures.
Please check out the video link that explains the summer reading program: Summer Reading Video
