A pamphlet of all the locations was sent home with students. Students will be able to check out books at their reading level to prevent summer reading slide. Students who participate will be part of the Bookmobile celebration at their respective school in the fall. Staff will also have snacks for students.

Stop the summer reading slide:

Did you know that students who read over the summer actually gain a month in their reading growth, but those who don’t lose an average of three months progress from the school year? We want all of our students to move forward during the summer. In order to accomplish this we are running a bookmobile to make books available to our students. Come see your teacher this summer as we take turns driving the bookmobile to a park near you. Whatever you do KEEP READING!
