Since the start of the summer reading program in 2015, Carlisle students have read over 700,000 minutes over the summer breaks. Reading is the most important skill that our students need in life, and parents play an essential role in helping their students learn it. Summer is a great time for students to read books and develop a love of reading.
It is still our expectation that every student will read over the summer. The reading choice may be made from the list provided for the grade that the student is entering in the fall or may be any other book suitable for the student's grade level. Students in grades 6-12 who have enrolled in the Advanced ELA courses will also have required books to read and assignments to complete over the summer. It is important to select books that challenge a student as well as interest him or her.
I would like to challenge parents to spend time reading with and encouraging your child to read this summer. We are excited about all the adventures and new information our students will gain through the books they will be reading during the summer and into the school year.
