2017 Summer Reading

Summer is a great time for our students to freely choose what they want to read and read for fun! Did you know studies have shown that reading just five books over the summer can prevent summer learning loss? Those who read recreationally have been shown to perform better academically than those who do not. So with that in mind, here are some reading suggestions and resources for you to use this summer. Build a Better World - READ!

Elementary Middle High

Student Literacy and Media (SLAM) Showcase
The Student Literacy and Media (SLAM) Showcase is a celebration of reading and literacy through students’ artistic and digital expressions in response to quality literature from state reading award lists. Students at participating schools share their creative works at their schools first. Exemplary selections go on to the District SLAM in March at the Tampa Convention Center where those students are recognized, attend an art and film festival of student created art and videos inspired by books, meet authors of some of the award nominated books, and enjoy other literacy based activities.
