Keep the Summer Reading going with BOOK BINGO!

Do you know about the summer READING slide? Typically over the summer, students who don’t read, lose their reading skills.

Students will be given a Book Bingo sheet this week, tailored for their grade level.

Prizes will be awarded in August for students who complete 2 or more bingos on the board. Students who complete a black out will be entered in a drawing for an awesome book basket!

To learn more about the summer reading slide and how you can access FREE books on OverDrive, go to this link:
