AISD Summer Reading Program

AISD continues with its "5 Book Dive" summer reading program. The idea behind our summer reading program is to read at least 5 books of your choice over the summer. They have created an excellent list of SUGGESTED titles for all grade levels. Click the image to the right to browse their lists.

As an incentive, any student that reads 5 books and fills out the BookPeople form is eligible to receive a $5 e gift card to Book People.

Form can be found here:
