Summer Reading 2021

Summer Reading 2021
Posted on 06/21/2021
Dear Families, Caregivers and Students,

As we approach summer vacation, I want to remind you of the importance of summer reading. Reading is the best way for students to keep growing during the summer and to prepare them for the following school year. Along with all of the academic benefits of reading (expanding vocabulary, increasing background knowledge, and building reading comprehension, to name a few!) there are many physical and mental health benefits as well. Reading reduces stress, alleviates anxiety, strengthens the brain, and improves sleep. In addition, reading is a wonderful form of entertainment and a way to escape to a new world!

At Putnam Ave., we are committed to supporting all of our students in developing their vibrant, engaged, and empowered reading lives. I am excited to share that along with a list of recommended books, ebooks, and audiobooks to read this summer, each student will be given two books of their own to keep and enjoy! One title is a book that all students and staff at Putnam Ave. will read, and the other is a choice text that students selected for themselves. More information on receiving your student’s copies of these books is included in the attached information below.
