SUMMER READING – Summer 2021

Summer reading research suggests that students can lose more than two months of academic progress (known as the summer slide). 

We recognize our students' extraordinary perseverance in meeting the unique challenges of the 2020–21 school year and celebrate their growth through their hard work, resilience, and patience. 

We want students to maintain and build on that growth during the summer months ahead–and to relax and experience the pure JOY of reading.
