Welcome to all new and returning ECMS students! We hope you had a restful and wonderful summer!
Relax, play, and have fun this summer. Keep reading, too!
By reading 20+ minutes a day, students avoid the “summer academic slide” and maintain or advance academic gains. To support summer reading and learning, The Cobb County School District’s Library Media Education Department, in conjunction with the Cobb County Public Library, Smyrna Public Library, and Marietta City Schools, challenges all students to read 1,500 minutes this summer.
Log your 2019 minutes in Biblionasium using your student number and computer password you use to log in at school.
You may read whatever you like – no requirements!
Some great links:
You can read anywhere, anytime, and virtually anything this summer, because Get Georgia Reading partner Renaissance myON is delivering thousands of free books—plus engaging daily news articles—to your computer and mobile devices that you can access 24 hours a day from May 6 through Aug. 31.
All children, parents and guardians, educators, and librarians can search from more than 50 different categories and genres, fiction and nonfiction, picture books, graphic novels, chapter books, titles for struggling and reluctant readers, and Spanish and bilingual titles.
It’s like having your own personal library right at your fingertips.
