Principal's Summer Challenge

Your child has worked hard at reading this year.  According to research (from Reading is Fundamental), students who do not read over the summer can lose as much as 22% of their reading level!  That would mean two months of school down the drain!  You can prevent this summer reading loss by encouraging your child to read over the summer.

At our last Readers-to-Leaders celebration, Mrs. Phillips challenged the children to read 100 books this summer (for children reading chapter books, this means a chapter counts as a book). They received a pamphlet (went home today) with 100 stars. Children that return the competed chart will earn a special treat from the Principal when we get back to school in the fall.  So... copy the chart below if you can't find the one we sent home and put the chart on your frig so you can encourage your child to reach the goal!
