Summer Reading

Summer Reading Challenge 2018

Did you know that research shows that in elementary age kids, the summer months can UNDO months of learning form the school year?! This is called the “summer slide.” In fact it can be as much as three months of learning that is lost! That is 1/3 of a school year! In order to help our students avoid the "summer slide," we are introducing our Summer 2018 Reading Challenge! Our goal is for students to read at least 20 minutes every day this summer! 
Students who meet the reading challenge requirements will be rewarded with a waterslide and ice pop party right here at school in August or September. A double-sided, gigantic waterslide will be set up for students to have fun sliding on while listening to a  live DJ and enjoying flavored ice pops!


Rising Kindergarten-2nd Graders: Must read at least 15 quality picture books and/or chapter books. Half of these books must be on the student's reading level. 
Rising 3rd-5th Graders: Must read at least four chapter books. Two of the four must be on the student's reading level. 
Students must return the reading log found in the "Quick Links" section with a parent signature to their homeroom teacher by Friday, August 10.
