Spend the Summer with a Great Book
Dear Comet Families,
Did you know that when kids read over the summer they are more likely to leap ahead when they return to school? This is often called the “summer leap,” and we’ve made it a priority to keep your child’s skills sharp by encouraging them to read all summer long.
This year, our school has signed up to participate in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge, a free online reading program that invites children to log their reading minutes all summer. The goal is for our students to discover the joy and magic of reading, and read the most minutes possible in an effort to earn special recognition at the end of the summer. I’m excited to share that the theme of this year’s program is "A Magical Summer of Reading!" As kids log their reading minutes throughout the weeks of summer, they will earn digital rewards as they meet their weekly reading goals. Plus, throughout the summer, kids can learn about great new books to read, access fun videos and printables, and more. You’ll also find summer booklists for all ages (in English and Spanish) on the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge website.
The fun begins on Monday, May 28th, and ends on Friday, September 7, 2018! I invite you to learn more about the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge at scholastic.com/summer. Have a wonderful summer!
