In preparation of its annual Summer Reading program, schools hosted a variety of activities that were designed to promote the importance of continuing to read year-round.

Activities included Archer, Bayview, Atkinson, Giblyn and New Visions decorating their libraries to resemble cafés and hosting “Book Tastings” for their students. As part of the event, students previewed a “menu” of books before selecting one to take home with them for summer reading. In addition, the high school invited the younger students to their library, complete with summer-themed decorations, and assisted them while they joined the Summer Reading Google Classrooms.

The activities in preparation of the district’s Summer Reading program are a testament to its commitment to student literacy.
