  • Summer Reading – Literacy for Life!

    Whether it’s reading, writing, speaking, listening, or deciphering, each day provides opportunities for us to deepen our literacy skills. The provided calendars can be used during the summer to keep those literacy skills sharp and to be ready to learn, grow, and share--even when school is not in session. We encourage you to use the calendars and mark off the activities you do. Each student who completes and returns these to school can redeem them in their school media center for a small treat!
