Help Set a New World Record for Reading!
Join the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge
Did you know that when kids don't read over the summer they are likely to fall behind when they head back to school? These learning losses are often called the "Summer Slide," and our school has made it a priority to keep our students' skills sharp by encouraging them to read all summer long.
Our school has signed up to participate in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge, a free online reading program that invites children ages 4 – 14 to log their reading minutes to help set a new world record for summer reading. The goal this year for schools around the world is to break last year's reading world record of 304,749,681 minutes! With your help, we can do it.
I'm excited to share that the theme of this year's program is Power Up and Read; as kids log their reading minutes, they will unlock stories written by bestselling authors. Plus, throughout the summer, kids will earn digital rewards and learn about great new books to read. You'll also find free articles, activity sheets, and book lists for parents on the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge website.
Don’t delay. You can start logging your child’s reading minutes today! The Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge began on May 4 and ends on . The school that logs the most minutes will win a visit from a bestselling children's book author and will be featured in The 2016 Scholastic Book of World Records.
I invite you to learn more about the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge at www.scholastic.com/summer. Your child’s username and password was listed on a letter that I sent home sometime this month after I had my last class with them. If your elementary student did not make it home with the letter, or if you lost your child's username or first-time password, please contact Linda Stallman or Cheryl Miller at (641) 724-3311 or contact Scholastic at 1-800-SCHOLASTIC.
The first time you log in, you will be prompted to change the password. Usernames cannot be changed, unfortunately. Step-by-step directions are available in a PDF file HERE.
