Summer Reading 

Governor's Summer Reading Challenge - The 2018 Governor’s Summer Reading Challenge was launched on May 8, 2018, at the Connecticut State Library in Hartford. This stresses the importance of reading through the summer months. Schools compete based on student population and grade level. The program identifies the schools with the highest percentage of participating enrollment and the highest number of books read by participating students. All materials are able to be printed online through their website.
