Did you know that when students read over the summer they are more likely to leap ahead when they return to school? This is often called the “Summer Leap,” and our school has made it a priority to keep our students’ skills sharp by encouraging them to read all summer long.
The Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge is a free online reading program that is dedicated to
encouraging students to read more books throughout the summer months.
The program will be held from May 8, 2017 to September 8, 2017. Students
who participate will be able to log the minutes they read over the
summer to unlock fun activities, including games, videos, quizzes, and
more. Plus, throughout the summer, students who complete weekly
challenges will be able to earn digital rewards and learn about great
new books to read. Families will have access to free booklists and
resources to help encourage their child to read throughout the summer.
Schools who log the most minutes over the summer will receive
recognition at the end of the program, and will be mentioned in the
2018 Scholastic Book of World Records.
The Olean Public Library and Allegany Public Library have Summer Reading programs each summer.
