Prizes and Book Swap

Here's what you need to bring!

  • $3 per student for food (menu is hot dogs, watermelon, chips, s'mores)
  • Beach towel
  • Swim goggles (to be used for one of the games)
  • Wear clothes that can get DIRTY and WET; you'll be swimming in these clothes, so old shorts and dark colored t-shirt is best
  • Life jacket for swimming - EVERYONE who swims MUST have this!!! The Jacobs will have several on hand if you don't have one. But if you have one, bring it! (and an extra if you've got one)
  • Dry clothes for after swimming
  • A book you want to swap with others
  • Chair


In order to come, you must have LOGGED 500 minutes of reading, or completed 250 pages. This can either be logged on the www.scholastic.com/summer website or on a paper log. If you haven't logged on the computer, you MUST bring your paper log to the party!
