Sandburg READS this Summer!

May 27, 2019

Research has shown that children who do not read regularly over the summer vacation come back to school in the fall being a poorer reader than they were when they left school the previous year.  It’s sad, but true.  No one wants their children to do worse next year than they did this year.  To help you help your child, every Sandburg student will receive at least two books to bring home with them for summer reading. 

Also in next week’s Wednesday folder, your child will bring home a Sandburg summer reading calendar.  You may print off an extra copy from the Sandburg website.  Children who read 500 minutes a month during the summer will participate in a fieldtrip to Barnes and Noble in the fall.  Each child will get to pick out a paperback book that our PTC will purchase.   Be sure to read this summer!
