Keep Reading This Summer

We are making strides in ensuring our students are reading at or above grade level by the end of third grade. Whether you have a child entering kindergarten this fall or a child starting middle school, please encourage them to keep reading this summer to prevent summer learning loss. The Idaho Falls Public Library has a great summer reading program and it’s free. If you’re not sure about good books to read, check out these summer reading lists from Reading Rockets. Questions?
