Summer is almost here. Summer reading lists for kindergarten through fourth grade will be sent home by Friday, May 13th. As always the list will focus on reading from a list of suggested authors and genres and not specific titles. Students who complete the summer reading list will be invited to a summer reading program at the beginning of next school year. The list will also be on the school website and the Media Center page. If you have any questions after the lists are distributed, contact Sharon Amolo at before the school year ends.

This week the Gwinnett County Public Library visited Gwin Oaks and all students signed up for the Summer Reading Program. Since students are already signed up they only need to pick up their Summer Reading Packet when they visit the public library. The packet contains a bookmark and a schedule of summer events.

To complete the Gwinnett County Summer Reading Program, students will set their own reading goal for the summer. Maybe it’s to read ten books or 100 pages or maybe even 100 hours! Whatever their goal is, when they finish and visit the library they’ll get a free book. Everyone gets a free book no matter what their goal was, but because they read and met their goal they also get a chance to win other prizes. They could win an iPad Mini with an Osmo Gaming System, a free trip to summer camp, free entrance to any i9 Sports League, a free year long pass to the High Museum, or a health & fitness gift basket. In addition to the wonderful prizes there will also be programs and activities for kids and teens. You can find a list of these through the Gwinnett County Public Library website or when you pick up the summer reading packet at the library.
