Check it Out! Summer Reading Program
This summer, the elementary division of the Jackson Township School District is proud to bring back “Check it Out!”, our Summer Reading initiative for students entering grades one through five in September. We are excited to bring parents and children together in our mission to promote literacy through reading.
Over the summer, you and your child can access these choices in several ways including the public library, a local bookstore or through ebooks. Additionally, our elementary school libraries will be open to students on select dates for book exchange. Children must be accompanied by an adult. SEE CHART TO THE RIGHT for DATES/HOURS.
Please remember that our goal is to make reading fun, enjoyable and something that families can do together. Please try to set aside family time for reading and/or read the book with your child. Listening, reading, and writing are all connected. Proficiency in one of these standards also helps attain proficiency in the others.
Elementary Summer Reading Lists
We ask that each child read FIVE BOOKS and complete the reading log.
When we begin the 2018-2019 school year in September, our teachers will set aside time to discuss the books they read.
NOTE: Although these lists include many high-interest and popular selections, students may also chose to read books not included.
