2016 Summer Reading

Summer is a great time for our students to freely choose what they want to read and read for fun! Did you know studies have shown that reading just five books over the summer can prevent summer learning loss? Those who read recreationally have been shown to perform better academically than those who do not. So with that in mind, here are some reading suggestions and resources for you to use this summer. Get in the GAME - READ!
