Summer Reading & Math

Summer Reading

It’s that time of year to encourage your students to participate in CONNECTICUT READS, the 2020 Governor’s Summer Reading Challenge! 

To support summer reading, the CT State Library is offering students and families access to RBDigital, a vast collection of free audiobooks and eBooks. For more information, visit the RBDigital Web site at https://iconnct.rbdigital.com. Additionally, the National Emergency Library is offering digitized books to students and the public at no cost. This temporary collection of books can be accessed at https://archive.org/details/nationalemergencylibrary. 

In addition to summer reading, to keep those literacy skills sharpened, your child will have access to Lexia all summer (K-8)! You can access Lexia via your child's Clever account. Also, continue to take advantage of all the wonderful learning resources on our Distance Learning Resources page over the summer!
