Reading over the summer is incredibly important for students and their academic achievement. Here’s why: Children who don’t read over the summer experience summer learning loss.
The Summer Reading Program encourages kids to read whatever they want, which helps instill a love of reading for recreation.
Bloomfield’s Elementary will be offering a summer reading program to any kid currently enrolled in k-5.
The first session started May 29 and will go to June 29 and is held in the Elementary School computer lab 9 a.m -11 a.m.
The next session will be from July 2 to July 31 in the high school music room, Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
The elementary and high school library will be closed. Books may be checked out from the Public Library or books can be brought from home.
Prizes are awarded for the points accumulated from passed tests taken during the summer reading program. Use this website to check if the book is AR testable: www.arbookfind.com/UserType.aspx.
