In looking at our summer reading program, the community, the administrators, the media specialists and teachers in each of the buildings suggested that changes be made to the program to truly reflect our aims for our young readers.
As a district, we are passionate advocates of reading. The changes you will see implemented reflect input from many community members, teachers, administrators, and students. Our goal is to foster a love of reading, to capitalize on the instinctive curiosity of children, and to create a community of readers within our schools.
In addition to the break from the routine and rigor of the classroom to recharge and renew, we feel it is important for children to continue to work on their reading skills during the summer months. If given appropriate guidance and suggestions in this area, students can maintain a healthy level of independent reading, especially with your support.
