Summer Reading Info 2018

K-5 Info at Top and Middle School Info at Bottom

For Students Entering Grades K-5 at Wolcott in the Fall

To help improve their reading skills, all students entering grades K-5 at Wolcott for the 2018-19 school year must read over the summer and complete a summer reading log. We would like you to log your books online through the Wandoo Reader website provided by West Hartford Public Library. If you are unable to log with Wandoo Reader, please use the paper reading log sent home or print a new one here.


Students entering grades 1-5 at Wolcott in the fall have registered for a Wandoo account in library class and that account information will be sent home with summer reading packets the week of June 11th.


Please see the How to Use Wandoo information below.


Remember, completing a summer reading log with the West Hartford Public Library on the computer keeps you from worrying about losing the paper log. You can also type up your summer reading in a document, print, and bring it to school in the fall.


If you fill it out on paper, please bring this paper to school with you no later than Sept 14, 2018.


Please see bottom of this flyer for middle school summer reading information.
