6/7/17 - ALL: LAUSD Summer Reading Challenge and LA Public Library Reading List

Superintendent King challenges our students to read a minimum of 100 minutes a week this summer and to complete the summer reading log(s) attached to this post! Challengers who meet this goal may submit their complete log and school name to nominate their school for an opportunity to receive $10,000 toward a school library makeover and a very special visit from a published author. Students may read and log up to August 14th and then turn in their logs by August 31st. Submit readings logs to: sharon.riley@lausd.net

Please encourage your students to visit their LA Public Library branch with their Student Success Library Cards and check out up to three books at one time. Don’t worry if they can’t get them back on time, they won’t charge them when they check out books with their Student Success Card. As soon as students return their books, they can check out more.  

"In an effort to continue our path to 100% graduation, the Los Angeles Unified School District encourages students to continue learning during the summer by reading independently. College and career ready students must be able to read and comprehend complex literary and informational texts independently and proficiently. More importantly, fostering a love of reading opens doors for students to learn about the world. As Dr. Seuss once said, 'You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.’"
                                            –Dr. Derrick Chau, Senior Executive Director, P-12 Instruction
