Summer Reading Links

Summer Reading is in full swing! Our district's Summer Reading Initiative strives to empower readers through choice; enable students to develop an independent reading life by cultivating interests and curiosities; and increase students’ reading volume and stamina, encourage “talk” around books, and allow for positive experiences with reading.
