Read All Summer Challenge 2010

TIS students in incoming Grades 1-5 are invited to participate in the Read All Summer Challenge sponsored by the TIS Library. All students will receive a Read All Summer form and suggested reading list by the end of this week. Students must read at least 10 books of their choice, three of which must be in their track language. Reading quietly, reading aloud, being read to or listening to an audiobook all count towards meeting the goal of ten books. Parents, please help your readers choose reading-level appropriate books. Younger readers will also enjoy fun and exciting books above their reading abilities, but which you can share together as a family. Return the forms to the library no later than September 30th for certificates and prizes!

Graduating 5th graders should check out the summer reading programs offered at local libraries or bookstores.
