Summer Reading Bingo Challenge
Edmond Public Schools 2017

Many students and families regard summer break as just that—a break from school and classroom studies.  Unfortunately, it often means a break from reading, which can seriously hamper achievement in the classroom.  There’s a solid link between the amount of independent reading children do and their success in school.  Research shows that kids who never crack open a book during the summer often fall behind in reading—the notorious “summer slide”—while kids who read, maintain or  improve their reading and learning skills.

I invite you to support your child in the Edmond Summer Reading Challenge.  There are two levels of participation: 1)—Architect completes a Public Library Reading program or complete at least 20 activities on the Bingo sheet.  2) Engineer participates in a Public Library Reading program and at least 20 activities on the Bingo sheet.
