Media Center Summer Reading

The Media Center will be open on Tuesdays from 9:00am-2:00pm for students to check out books. Below is a list of how much and how often students should be reading each day.



El Centro de Medios estará abierto los martes de 9:00 am a 2:00 pm para que los estudiantes puedan sacar libros. A continuación hay una lista de cuánto y con qué frecuencia deben leer los estudiantes cada día.

All Park Street students are challenged to read every day this summer, for at least 15 to 30 minutes.

Suggested summer reading goals for students based on grade levels are:

· K-2 - students: 10 books

· 3-5 - students: 8 chapter books

Students need strong reading skills in order to be successful at school and, later, in the workplace. Research shows that students who read proficiently by the end of third grade are more likely to be successful later in life. Students who fail to meet this milestone falter in the later grades.
Research has found that when children leave the structured environment of the classroom for summer break, many stop reading – and their reading abilities start to slip. Strong readers plateau. Struggling readers fall even farther behind. We want all of our Panthers to succeed so please take time to read this summer!

June 20th: Parent Workshop/ 20 de junio: Clases para padres

We will have a parent workshop on June 20th (this is a date change) from 8:30-9:30 in the Media Center. We will give you tips and tricks on how to help your child increase their academic success in school. This will be an interactive session and we will be providing materials for you to use with your child at home.



Tendremos una clase para padres el 20 de junio (esto es un cambio de fecha) de 8:30-9:30 en el Centro de Medios. Le daremos consejos y trucos sobre cómo ayudar a su hijo a aumentar su éxito académico en la escuela. Esta será una sesión interactiva y le proporcionaremos materiales para que los use con su hijo en casa.
