Encourage your fourth, fifth, and sixth graders to read during the summer
As the school year draws to a close, students naturally turn their thoughts to summer vacation and time away from books. It is important, though, to keep school age children in the mindset of learning. For this reason I have partnered with the New York State Library to offer you the 2010 Summer Reading Program, a fun and exciting way to keep students in FOURTH through SIXTH grades reading while on break from school during the summer months.
Once your child registers, I will supply the materials needed to successfully complete the program, including:
- Appropriate reading lists and listing of public libraries in our area;
- A reading journal for each child who participates; and
- Upon successful completion, a certificate and bookmark.
Each program participant must send me back their reading journal, with a parent or guardian’s name and signature, to receive their certificate and bookmark.
Please visit my website to find more information about the New York State Library’s Summer Reading Program as well as the registration form to begin your child's participation. If you have any questions or would like more information about the Summer Reading Program, please feel free to contact my office.
