Summer Checkout and Summer Library Hours

We would like to make sure that all of our students have access to high-quality, engaging, and appealing children’s literature over the summer.  In order to make sure that happens, our school library will be allowing students with a clear library record and parent permission to borrow library books for the summer!  In addition, our school library will be open for book check-out four mornings this summer.  We would love for you to bring your student to return books and get new library books.  The library will be open from 9:00-11:00am on June 25, July 9, July 23, and August 6.  All students do need to be accompanied by an adult.

Summer Reading Challenge
Summer is a time for relaxation and…reading, of course!  Many children forget some of what they have learned over the summer months and even lose gains they have made during the school year.  However, a multitude of research shows that reading just four or five books during the summer may keep a struggling reader from regressing (Kim, 2004). 
Please encourage your child to participate in our school’s Summer Reading Challenge.  Students will receive a Bingo sheet of reading activities before the end of the school year.  Students who complete the Summer Reading Challenge Bingo sheet will be invited to the library for a celebration.  Your child will not want to miss it!
Most importantly, please encourage your child to read every day.  All reading counts, including comic books, graphic novels, audiobooks, recipes, magazines, etc.  Reading aloud to your child is important at any age, as well.  Thank you for all you do to partner with us in helping your child succeed!

Family Reading Nights are an opportunity for your families to return to school to learn some great literacy strategies they can then take home to implement.  Combined with all those great books your students now have at home, these family literacy strategies will better ensure your students return to school ready to read and learn in the fall.
