Ridgeview Elementary Summer Reading!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Students in grades K-12 are invited to participate in the library’s summer reading program at Ridgeview! For students to continue their growth and skills in literacy, we encourage you and your child to read this summer. Please use or make a reading log to track the reading your child completes over the summer months. Then, at the start of the next school year, students can return their reading logs to the library to receive a prize for participating! Students are also welcome to participate in summer reading programs hosted by their local public libraries!

As stated by the American Library Association, a few great benefits of being involved in a summer reading program include:

  • Encouraging reading to become a lifelong habit

  • Helping children maintain and develop their skills

  • Continuing to generate interest in books and the library

  • Presenting an opportunity for family time

If needed, please click the Summer Reading link on this site to print another Summer Reading log.

Have a fun summer and Happy Reading!!
