Summer Reading Initiative (K-2)
SCOOP UP A GOOD BOOK THIS SUMMER
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 20th. 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 ten books each month (younger students can have books read to them by someone else) and complete a reading log. As part of the “Scoop Up A Good Book This Summer”, students are encouraged to enjoy reading in different places and to different people (i.e. in a tent, to a friend, while video visiting with someone) Students can return the reading log next school year for special recognition and a sweet treat. Families picking up student items on May 26 and 27 will be given a reading log with information on the summer reading 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.
Summer Extension Activities
With the closing of school on March 13th, our students have experienced many challenges to their typical learning experience. We all are planning for and hope for a return to school on August 20th but students would benefit from ongoing learning opportunities over the summer. In addition the the summer reading initiative above, we encourage families to use the resources included in the summer extension activity list below. You will find all kinds of online resources to help your child practice literacy, math, science, and other learning skills.
