Mark your calendars for District Summer Reading Kick-Off

All students K-12 benefit from continuing to read through the summer. To celebrate literacy and help combat the "summer learning slide," the Colonial School District is hosting a fun-filled and informative evening for all district families at the Barnes & Noble on May 10.

Highlights include:

  • Teacher-led activities for elementary and middle school students
  • Information sessions for parents
  • Summer literacy activity ideas
  • 2018 K-12 summer reading lists
  • Tech tips covering beneficial apps and websites
  • Discounts on book purchases

"Whether your children struggle with reading or always have books in their hands, you'll come away with tips to help build their literacy skills," said Dr. Katy Giovanisci, Colonial School District Curriculum Supervisor and one of the coordinators for the event.

The activities and information sessions will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 10, at the Barnes & Noble in the Metroplex on Chemical Road in Plymouth Meeting. All Colonial families are encouraged to attend.

Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Program

Children in first through sixth grade can also join the free Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Program, where they read any eight books, document them in a summer reading journal (click here for a copy of the Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Journal), bring the completed journal to the store and choose a free book from a selection of popular children's book titles.
