BRHS Summer Reading 2013
Oh, the Places We’ll Go!
Summer is the time to wind down, get away from it all, and read for pleasure. Take advantage of the extra time you have to pick up the newest bestseller or the book you’ve been trying to read forever, but you never had the chance. This summer we hope to encourage more student (and teacher) participation in our summer reading program.
In order to participate, students simply pick up a school addressed postcard from the media center and send it in with a short description of where they are (if traveling/or even if not) and what they are reading. See below for detailed directions. We also would love to have pictures, especially of students reading in these settings. Postcards and pictures will be used for a display when school begins. Students who send in a postcard will be invited to a summer reading party with refreshments and door prizes.
Be sure to check out our BRHS online catalog and media center webpage. We have E books and the same Overdrive service that is available at your public library with Kindle, E book, and audiobook titles. Go to the Blue Ridge home page and click on Media Center for details. Enjoy your summer and bring your book recommendations to us in August!
Summer Reading Program Directions
Pick up a postcard from the media center or print one on card stock from this link.
If this is not an option, send us any postcard from your summer activities (local, in or out of state, or abroad).
Directions for Postcard
- Write a brief note of the place you are visiting and the Title of a book, magazine or E book you are reading.
- Be sure to sign and print your first and last name and upcoming grade, so we will know who to invite to the summer reading party.
- If you do not get one of our pre-addressed postcards, send your postcard to:
