The goal of the Summer Reading Program is to provide students with a little motivation to practice reading. Reading throughout the summer helps to develop a love of reading and allows children to continue to grow as a reader during their vacation time.

How it works

Reading for this program should be done between June 2nd and August 6th, 2017. Students should read four to five days per week.
The chart below shows the suggested reading time to reach each day. If your child gets hooked on a good book and would like to read for longer than the suggested time, just record those minutes on the Summer Reading Calendar.
You and your child should record the time-spent reading. Each time your child reads, write your initials on the Summer Reading Calendar with the total number of minutes for that day.
Students will need to turn in their Summer Reading Calendar when they return to school in August. Please total up the time for your teacher/librarian. Students who have met their reading goal will receive special recognition.
