Dear Sego Lily Families,
Reading is a great way to keep skills up over the summer months and, in most cases to increase them. To encourage summer reading we will be having a drawing again this next year. To be eligible for the drawing all students have to do is read for 100 minutes each week of the summer break. Students may read for 20 minutes – 5 days a week, 15 minutes – 7 days , 35 minutes – 3 days, or whatever combination works for your family, as long as the total for each week averages at least 100 minutes.
Students will need to fill out the bottom portion of this page, have a parent sign it, and bring it back to school when we start again in the fall. On the reverse side of this letter is a calendar for each student to track his or her minutes read. If the calendar gets misplaced, one may go to the school website and download another copy.
To make reading fun and interesting, children need new reading material. We encourage families to make regular trips to the city library. Also, this summer we will have our school library open on Wednesdays from 11:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. For our Sego Lily Summer Reading Challenge though, any reading will count, e.g. newspapers, magazines, books, ebooks, comic books, fiction, nonfiction – anything in print!
Also, if students want to bring in a photo of a fun place they read this summer (tree house, beach, airplane, grandma’s porch, Dinosaurland, etc,) we would love to see and display them. We are excited to hear about your reading adventures! Have fun and be safe!
