Two winners will be selected from each grade level and their photos will be featured on our summer reading bulletin board. All winners will receive a prize!

BC Summer Reading Club 2020

Students are also encouraged to check out the BC Summer Reading Club that is organized by the public libraries. This fun reading club can be done in conjunction with the ESS Summer Reading Challenge by simply handing in the reading log from this reading club.


Here is more information from their website:

"For nearly 30 years, the BC Summer Reading Club (BC SRC) has motivated kids to continue reading and learning during the summer months. Kids ages 5-14 register for this free program with their local public library. They record their reading progress, building self-confidence and developing their reading skills, while participating in fun activities.

This year, thanks in part to funding from the Ministry of Education, the BC SRC has added the option for readers to participate online, so that families have access even if they aren‘t able to visit their local public library in-person. Some of the exciting new, online features that have been added this year include:

* Kids can earn digital badges for reaching their reading goals as well as a certificate of completion (and in some communities, a medal) for finishing the program.

* A dashboard for parents/guardians to track their kids‘ reading progress and the digital badges they‘ve earned.

* Weekly stay-at-home activity packages.

* Live events and video demonstrations including hands-on crafts and experiments.

This year‘s theme is “Explore Our Universe” featuring illustrations by B.C. artist Bambi Edlund. All reading counts – kids can read whatever they want, in whatever language they feel most comfortable. They can also listen to someone else read or tell stories."
