The Jackson County Elementary and Middle Schools are teaming up with the Piedmont Regional Library System and encouraging all of our students to participate in our summer reading challenge! Research shows that many kids' reading skills decline during the summer because they often don't read as much as they do during the school year. Reading even a few books over the summer will help maintain the progress students have made this year.
Students: We are challenging you to read 40 books or 20 hours this summer. This is the same challenge that has been set by your local public library branch! This means that you can visit your local library this summer to check out some amazing books and to fill out a reading log with the same books that you are including for your school reading log.
Use the provided reading log to record the title and author of each book you read this summer. Your reading log was given to you on one of the last days of school. You can also download it from the link at the bottom of this page.
Completed reading logs are due Wednesday, August 10th. Students who read the designated number of books or complete their 20 hours of reading, will be able to participate in a fun and exciting activity at their school.
