Summer Reading, Book Swap and Family Workshop

Book Swap image
Research shows that students can maintain school year reading achievement by reading just 4-5 books over the summer months. At South Country Central School District our elementary students and parents had opportunities to choose books to take home over the summer to read. Teachers organized efforts for book swaps and secured donations from The Book Fairies at each of our elementary schools at the end of the school year. Buildings rallied around summer reading with books swaps and pep rallies to help students choose books and set goals for their summer reading.

On Thursday, August 3rd there will be a Parent and Child Workshop on Reading Strategies that will end with an additional book giveaway including books for children and adults. This will be held at the Brookhaven Elementary School from 12:00pm-1:00pm.
