BES Summer Reading Program Requirements.
All incoming students in grades 1 through 8 must read 77 Steps (15 minute increments) by September 11th. This equates to 19.25 hours of total summer reading. Reading logs were distributed to students and are also available on the website.
Incoming students in grades 3 through 8 must read two self-selected books and complete two literacy activities. Student entering 3rd grade must complete two graphic organizers. Students entering grades 4 through 8 must select one activity from List A and one activity from List B. Each project must be from a different book, not the same book. Project descriptions and rubrics were given to students the week of June 12th, and are available on the website, as well.
In an effort to provide our students with consistent access to leveled books throughout the summer, the school media center will be open on the following days to allow students to exchange and select new reading material: Beginning July 11th -August 10th Tuesday and Thursdays from 11:30-12:30 P.M.
