As the end of the school year approaches, we begin encouraging our children to stay involved in reading over the summer. To prevent any regression in reading achievement over the summer months, we encourage you to involve your child in a national, state-led summer reading initiative that supports students in finding great books to read over the summer. Georgia is launching the 2013 Summer Reading Challenge to combat this summer loss in student reading ability. The Lexile “Find a Book” website can help identify books that students are interested in and are able to read. More detailed information can be found in the attached flyers about the “Find a Book” program along with specific directions for accessing the program. We look forward to you joining the Summer Reading Challenge efforts to help your child “Find-a-Book” and increase their reading skills.
