scholastic challenge

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.

Our ELA teachers in grades K-8 have registered interested students in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge. A letter was sent home with your student’s username and password.  Should this information be lost, contact Scholastic at 1-800-SCHOLASTIC or email Students may also register with their parent's permission at the link provided above.
