2020 Summer Reading BINGO!

2020 Summer Reading BINGO!

"Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are."  Mason Cooley

All students, parents and staff 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.  It is of particular concern, this year, due to the lengthy Shelter In Place we experienced before Summer break began.  Please encourage your student 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.  There is one BINGO! card for everyone. 
Students in grades TK-3 complete the ENTIRE BINGO! card. 
Students entering grades 4-8, parents and staff members complete one row or one column to achieve BINGO!

Summer Reading BINGO! Screen Cast explains each square of the BINGO! Card.
