 WCSD Summer Reading Program 

Twin Goals of Summer Reading

GOAL #1: 
Inspire a lifelong love of reading

Whether it is a mystery, a fantasy, or a "how-to" book, there is a book that will open new worlds for each of us.  Summer reading is a great chance for each student to explore personal interests and find his/her own "just right" books. 

GOAL #2:  Promote and develop literacy

Research strongly suggests that reading skills improve with practice and weaken when not exercised. The bottom line is that students who read during the summer do better in the fall!!
