Veterans Park has signed up to participate in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge, a free online reading program that invites children to log their reading minutes all summer. The goal is for the students in our school to read the most minutes possible in an effort to receive recognition and a mention in the 2018 Scholastic Book of World Records. With your help, we can do it!

Veterans Park has set a goal to read 1,000,000 minutes this summer!  To help us reach this goal, our school library will be open from June 6-July 25 on Tuesdays from 9:00-11:00 a.m. for check-out.  Students must be accompanied by an adult.  The library will not be open June 20 or the week of July 4.

 

I’m excited to share that the theme of this year’s program is “Happy Camper: Take a Reading Adventure!” As kids log their reading minutes throughout the 18 weeks of summer, they will unlock a book featuring fun activities including games, videos, quizzes and more. Plus, throughout the summer, kids will earn digital rewards and learn about great new books to read. On the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge site, families will have access to free books lists across all ages.

The fun begins on May 8, 2017, and ends on September 8, 2017. I invite you to learn more about the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge at www.scholastic.com/summer.

Usernames and passwords will be coming home next week!  If your child forgets his or her summer reading username, please Ms. Ault directly or contact Scholastic at 1-800-SCHOLASTIC or email summerchallengehelp@scholastic.com.
