Summer Reading Challenge

Avoid the “summer slump” by participating in our Summer Reading Challenge! This voluntary activity is open to new and returning students in grades six, seven, and eight.


Here’s how it works:

  • Choose ANY reading material, including books, magazines, newspapers, news or magazine articles posted online, eBooks, fanfiction, Wattpad, etc.
  • Track Your Reading: Color one block on the summer image for every 15 minutes you read this summer.
  • Get a Parent Signature: A parent must sign the challenge sheet before it is turned in.
  • Earn Rewards: All students who participate in the Summer Reading Challenge will earn prizes at the beginning of the 2019-2020 School Year!


The challenge sheet contains 120 blocks, equivalent to 30 hours of reading. Can you color in the entire image?  Download the Summer Reaching Challenge now! (PDF format)

Teachers and staff will also participate in the Summer Reading Challenge! Keep up with our literary adventures via our Facebook and Instagram pages.
