The summer is here and, with that, summer reading! By consistently reading throughout summer vacation your child will continue to progress as a reader, a writer, a speller, and a learner. Students who don't read during break can academically fall behind those who do.  Please support and encourage your student to read this summer and complete their summer reading logs. Our 2024 theme is "Read, Renew, Repeat".

Those who turn in a log with their name and a minimum of 10 books OR a chapter book with at least 10 chapters read OR those completing a reading bingo sheet will be invited to participate in our summer reading celebration in the fall. All reading logs are DUE no later than Monday, September 9, 2024. Our celebration is scheduled for Friday, September 20, 2024.
