Summer Reading Challenge

Summer Reading Challenge

School District U-46 is excited to partner with our local libraries again this year for the Community Summer Reading Challenge Program. Each year in U-46 we see the positive impact this program has on our students. And every year, more students participate. In fact, more than 3,000 students completed the reading challenge in 2016.

 

In spring 2017, U-46 launched a Library Card Challenge to celebrate the joy and importance of library card ownership and reading. Elementary school principals and staff encouraged students during the month-long challenge to become library cardholders. More than half of K-6 students (10,259) let the District know that they own or have access to a library card. Lowrie Elementary School received a trophy for the highest percentage of student library cardholders at 99 percent and Garfield Elementary School received a trophy for the highest percent increase of student library cardholders with almost half the students owning a card.

 

Don’t risk your student losing up to two months of reading this summer.  Register for the Summer Reading Challenge at your local library and make sure they read at least 20 minutes a day.
