Avoid the “Summer Slide”!  Read, Read, Read!

Did you know that when kids don’t read over the summer they are likely to fall behind when they head back to school? These learning losses are often called the “Summer Slide,” and our school has made it a priority to keep our students’ skills sharp by encouraging them to read all summer long.       

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 to help set a new world record for summer reading. The goal this year for schools around the world is to break last year’s reading world record of 176,438,473 minutes!  We have also set an individual goal for our students to read 1,000 minutes each by August 15.  With your help, we can do it, and your child will earn a “Park & Popsicles Party” in August if he/she reaches the goal!  Current 6th graders will earn a free Monarch spirit item (we wouldn’t forget about you)!!

The fun began on May 5, 2014, and ends on August 15, 2014! The school that logs the most minutes will win a visit from a bestselling children’s book author and will be featured in The 2015 Scholastic Book of World Records.
