Summer Reading Opportunities

Summer reading is critical for students to retain knowledge and skills learned in the previous school year. It is important that parents encourage their students to continue to read even over the summer break. There are plenty of opportunities for families to ensure your student has access to plenty of books to keep them busy reading over the summer! Here are just a few:
