Summer Reading

Participation in Summer Reading directly impacts student achievement. Recent research confirms that students who do not read or engage in meaningful thinking activities can lose up to 30% of progress gained during their school year. The good news is that the research also shows that students who engage in reading books, discussing books, and participating in opportunities to have books read aloud or read-along counteracts any possible summer slide. Establishing a habit of lifelong reading early and nurturing it throughout our children’s school years is critical to a child’s success in life.
