Attention All Teachers: 

Please help advertise and support our annual Summer Reading Program which begins on Monday, June 25th and runs through Friday, August 17th.

This summer’s theme, “Dream Big – Read!”  Is about all things nocturnal – dreams, lullabies and bedtime stories, gazing at the stars, telling stories around the campfire, bats, owls, and other nocturnal animals; and people who work at night too.

Children may pick up their “Dream Big-Read” packet starting on June 25th.  For every four (4) hours of reading, the child may select a small prize, a free book, or a chance to enter into a drawing for a larger prize.  The more they read, the more prizes they earn!

Suggested reading lists will be provided throughout the summer.
