2019 Summer Reading Program

2019 Summer Reading Program --
You Otter Read this Summer!

Sea Otter

All incoming students are encouraged to participate in our Summer Reading Program.  Summer reading is an important tool to help prevent summer slide.  Summer slide is when students skills slip away during the long summer break due to lack of reading practice.  Please help your student and all his/her classmates to participate in this annual tradition.  We do not want them to feel left-out at the beginning of the school year when their classmates are being recognized for their reading achievements.

Here's how the program works.  Students read during Summer Break:  June - August 18th, 2019
We offer two (2) summer reading programs by grade level.  Students in grades TK-3 complete a summer reading record by coloring a clamshell each day they read for 20 or more minutes.  Students in grades 4-8 play summer reading BINGO! by reading 3 books and writing a review of a recommended title.  Summer Reading flyers with more information are attached at the bottom of this web page.  Please make sure to download and complete the proper form for your student(s).  

DUE DATES:   First Week of School, August 19 - 23, 2019.
Late entries are not accepted.
