Summer READ 5 & Beyond

In an effort to create a community of readers and prevent summer reading loss, District 186 proudly continues our summer reading initiative, Read 5 & Beyond. Since spring of 2010, we have been encouraging all students at every grade level to read at least five books during the summer. One way our district supports this effort is by providing PreK - 8 students with engaging books. Students will be able to log the minutes they read over the summer on the Read 5 web page. This web page not only helps students document their own reading, but also allows them to see what and how much other students are reading. Join us in supporting this program!

How do I log in to the website & record my reading minutes?

Once school is over and summer has begun, you will be able to go the District 186 Homepage and find a Read 5 link. Clicking on that link will take you to the log in page. Here are directions for logging in on the site and recording your summer reading minutes.
