Summer Reading Information
Young Five through 3rd Grade
Kids Read Now
Holly Area Schools has partnered with Kids Read Now to prevent the summer reading slide and close the achievement gap. All students in grades Y5-3 will be participating in the program that begins this spring and runs through the end of August. Students choose nine, new, free books they want to read over the summer. Each elementary school will hold a Family Reading Night where students receive their first three books. Each time a student completes a book, parents contact Kids Read Now by phone, text, or online, and the next book is shipped directly to their home. Read a book - get a book - all summer long! Enjoy the journey to better grades and a lifelong love of learning! To learn more about Kids Read Now, view the How it Works video.
Holly Area Schools is also providing summer reading books for all students in 4th Grade. All students chose five books to check out over the summer. Each elementary building is holding a Family Reading Night where students in 4th grade will take home three of the books they chose at school. Students stop at school to return books they have read and to pick up the next two books (schedules provided by the individual buildings). Keep reading - all summer long! Enjoy the journey to better grades and a lifelong love of learning.
