K-5 Summer Reading

Get Ready for Summer Reading!

Bookworm

We celebrate the summer season by embracing longer days, enjoying time together, and reflecting on all the hard work that has happened in our classrooms this year. Fostering a love for reading is one of the greatest gifts we can give to our children.  We want our students to be lifelong readers and learners; so as you prepare your summer schedules, please remember to include plenty of time for reading activities.

In collaboration with the South Windsor Public Library, the South Windsor Public Schools summer reading program is designed to encourage students to continue their good reading habits throughout the summer months. This year’s summer reading theme is Libraries Rock! The South Windsor Public Library staff  is available all summer to help your child find books he or she wants to read. We encourage you to register for the Summer Reading Program at the library beginning June 25th, and to make frequent trips to the library to take advantage of all that they offer. For more information, please look for the “Kid Zone: Programs and Activities” at www.southwindsorlibrary.org.  
We are also asking students to keep track of their reading this summer using the suggested activities and graphing tools on the following pages. It is our goal that South Windsor students will read 20 minutes a day this summer!
