Summer Reading lists and Summer Math Practice sheets were sent home with students on the last day of school. It is very important for your child to continue to develop reading and math skills over the summer. Research and data show that if children are not engaged in learning over the summer months, they fall behind when the new school year begins.

The Scholastic Summer Challenge is a free reading program dedicated to stopping the “Summer Slide” and encouraging kids to read every day this summer. Now in its eighth year, the Summer Challenge invites kids to log the minutes they spend reading as they Read for the World Record.

Kids can participate in weekly challenges, earn digital rewards, enter sweepstakes to win fabulous prizes, find great books to read, and more. Information is available to parents on how they can access this program as OES helps bridge the school-to-home connection and keep kids reading all summer long.
