Summer Reading is an important way for students to maintain what they have learned. It is important for our students to continue to increase their reading levels even when they are away from school. Studies have shown that reading 4 to 12 books over the summer break can help students retain what they have learned. For this summer, students at Tapp should read 1500 minutes over the summer. Cobb County School District has again teamed up with the Cobb County Public Library to encourage reading. Students will log their minutes into Biblionasium using their Destiny login. Students may also write a book review to turn into the Cobb County Public Library. They would like to display some of the reviews like they did last year. The review form can be found on www.cobbcat.org/summer-reading-program/
If your student has misplaced their login information please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you the information. This years students will be provided with a reading log that they should fill out and return to the school in the fall with a parent’s signature.
