Summer Reading Program


    Dear Parents,       

     Did you know that when kids don’t read over the summer they are likely to fall behind when they head back to school?  These learning losses are often called the “Summer Slide,” and our school has made it a priority to keep our students’ skills sharp by encouraging them to read all summer long.

    I have signed up our students to participate in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge, a free online reading program that invites children to log their reading minutes to help set a new world record for summer reading.  As kids log their reading minutes they will earn digital rewards and learn about great books to read. 

    Please begin logging reading minutes now at www.scholastic.com/summer.  A letter was sent home with your student’s username and password.  In September, awards will be presented to those who achieve 2000 reading minutes (that’s about 15 minutes a day).  Please contact me if you have any questions at jere.fisher@clover.k12.sc.us
