Choose Your Own Adventure with a Book This Summer!

Studies have shown that students who read over the summer are more successful during the school year. Plus, reading can take you on any adventure you choose! Mystery, Fantasy, Sci Fi, History, or even Realistic Fiction can take you places you can only dream of. So, pick up a book and read this summer! Mrs. Johnson will be reading right along with you! This year GCISD's summer reading assignment is to read whatever you choose! Click below to learn more about the GCISD summer reading assignment!
