UPDATED SUMMER READING LISTS WILL BE POSTED SHORTLY!!!!
 
 
Greetings, readers!
 
Attached please find the suggested summer reading list for our  students, Pre-K through Gr. 5.  Many thanks to our HVRSD librarians for once again putting together an awesome list. 
 
Remember, parents...
 
The long documented "summer slide" with respect to literacy is only real if we let it be real.  Get books in their hands; read in front of them, to them, and with them.  Ask them about their faves.  Encourage them to experiment with various genres.  Tap into a book blog, etc.  Hang out at the library on rainy days, and some sunny ones as well. 
 
Enjoy.
