Summer Reading

June 2015


Dear Parents,

We would like to thank you for assisting us in making reading a priority for your child through your participation in the East Meadow Summer Reading Program. Students’ success in school depends upon their ability to read thoughtfully and critically.

During the summer, we ask you to encourage your children to read. Just as athletes need to stay in shape and train during the off season to excel at their sport, students need to stay “intellectually” in shape by reading over the summer.  This will ensure a smooth transition back to school in September.

Attached is the book list for your child’s 2015-2016 grade level.  These titles were carefully chosen by teachers in the district and are appropriate for your child. Many of the titles are available at the school library.  If your child chooses to borrow a book from the school’s library, then it will be his/her responsibility to return the book to school by Friday, October 16, 2015.  Additionally, the East Meadow Public Library, as well as Barnes and Noble in Carle Place have received the lists.  Copies of these books will be made available at these venues.

Your child should read at least one book from the list.  These books will provide numerous opportunities for family discussions.  If you are interested in reading additional titles with your child, feel free to refer to this list or ask your librarian for recommendations.

Please indicate on the attached form which option your child will choose for 2015 summer reading.  Should you have questions, please call my office.

Thank you very much.
