Summer Reading Info 2019

K-5 Info at Top and Middle School Info at Bottom

For Students Entering Grades K-5 at Wolcott in the Fall

To help improve their reading skills, all students entering grades K-5 at Wolcott for the 2019-20 school year must read over the summer and complete a summer reading log. We would like you to log your books online through the ReadSquared website provided by West Hartford Public Library. If you are unable to log with ReadSquared, please use the paper reading log sent home or print a new one here.


Please see the How to Use ReadSquared information below.


Remember, completing a summer reading log with the West Hartford Public Library on the computer keeps you from worrying about losing the paper log. You can also type up your summer reading in a document, print, and bring it to school in the fall.


All summer reading logs (online or paper) are due September 13, 2019.


Please see bottom of this flyer for middle school summer reading information.

Info for Students Going into Middle School

All students going into middle school are given a bookmark with all the summer reading information for middle school. If you are going to middle school next year, you are expected to read at least one book. When you return to school in the fall, you will complete a Reading Survey assignment and will have a discussion about your book(s) with your new team!
