Why Is Summer Reading Important?

  • Children need to engage with books every day so they can maintain and strengthen all the literacy skills they learned during the previous school year.
  • It is estimated that school summer breaks will cause the average student to lose up to one month of instruction if they do not engage in reading.
  • Teachers typically spend 4-6 weeks re-teaching material that students have forgotten over the summer.
  • Children involved in summer library programs benefit academically from story hours, arts and craft s and other special events designed to enhance reading.

How to Help Stop the "Summer Slide"

  • Participate in your local public library summer reading program.
  • Encourage your children to participate in our school Summer Reading Bingo Game
  • Use OverDrive on any digital device to read eBooks or listen to audio books.
  • Read aloud to your child. It helps build vocabulary and listening comprehension skills.
  • Consider matching your child's "screen" time on video games or watching TV with the same number of minutes reading a book.

Summer Reading Bingo

Participate in the Summer Reading Bingo game to win prizes at the beginning the new school year. The more Bingos you get, the more prizes you win! Parents must initial the boxes for it to be valid. Bring the game board to  Mrs. Sapp in the library the first week of school to claim your prizes.
