Summer Reading Links
Our District’s Summer Reading Initiative has begun! Reading can lead to stronger academic success and wellness; therefore, the goals of the District's Summer Reading Initiative are to:
- Empower readers through choice
- Enable students to develop an independent reading life by cultivating interests and curiosities
- Increase students’ reading volume and stamina, encourage “talk” around books, and allow for positive experiences with reading
Please visit our District’s Summer Reading Initiative web page and explore all the possibilities.
