the third grade required summer reading.

Please carefully read below to understand and be prepared for your
summer reading.

Students should also have opportunities to choose what they want to read as well.
Each student should complete the Summer Reading Recording Form. The Summer

The poster and reading form should be completed over the summer vacation 
and returned to your child’s classroom teacher, September 3-5.
