Summer Reading

Dear Parents and Students,

Summer is quickly approaching and it is very important that students continue reading during the summer months so that they don't lose what they have worked so hard all year to gain!  Attached to this email/letter are a few summer reading programs that offer incentives for reading.  

1.  Barnes and Noble Summer Reading--students can earn a free book from Barnes and Noble by completing the attached reading journal and taking it to Barnes and Noble bookstore in Hickory.

2.  ASU Summer Reading with the Mountaineers--students record all books read on the attached reading log and return the log to Mrs. Hawkins in August 2016.  All participants will receive a voucher to attend an ASU basketball game.

3.  Don't forget the Burke County Public Library program.

Upcoming 4th and 5th Grade students--If you are interested in being on the 2016-2017 Battle of the Books team, begin reading books from the attached Elementary Battle of the Book List.  Our team will be picked in September!

Happy Reading!
