Summer Reading!

Take the "5 Book Dive" This Summer!

Whether you're outside by the pool or inside where it's cool, summer is the perfect time to read! AISD's summer reading program, the 5 Book Dive, encourages students in all grades to read at least five books over the summer. Research shows that reading five or more books over the summer helps kids maintain their reading proficiency and be ready for the next school year. Take a look below at all the ways to stay engaged with reading this summer.
