According to the National Reading Panel, the more students read, the better their fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. Reading is the key to future success, and summer reading is instrumental to that success. Students lose literacy skills when they don’t read during the summer. Summer reading keeps literacy skills front and center for the coming school year.
“The practice of reading and learning to love good books during the summer gives us the opportunity to extend the school year,” said Regina Renaldi, Assistant Superintendent Area 3 & Priority Programs.
