Summer Reading Challenge 2021
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 Sunset Summer Reading Challenge. There are two levels of participation: 1) Adventurer completes a Public Library Reading program OR completes the activities on the challenge sheet. 2) Explorer participates in a Public Library Reading program AND at least 20 activities on the challenge sheet.
Return a signed challenge sheet by August 28th to your librarian in order to be eligible for prizes. There are other summer reading challenges available! How many can you complete?
