Teachers and students perform skit at pep rally to encourage summer reading

Schuylerville Elementary School teachers and administrators helped get students excited about reading this summer at a pep rally on Friday, June 2. Students watched a video and a skit centered around the theme “Reading can take you anywhere and you can take books anywhere!”

This summer, the elementary school is teaming up with the Schuylerville Public Library to continue its summer reading program. Students are encouraged to take part in helping the school reach its 500 book goal, by logging their reading. Students can keep track by using the log below or using the library’s online program, Beanstack. Students using the printable log should turn it in to their new teacher in the fall. The school will be notified of those choosing to use the online program.

“We initiated the Schuylerville summer reading program a few years ago because reading during the summer is so important for our young readers,” said Krista Senatore, Literacy Coach. “Summer reading helps students to maintain the reading habits and skills that they developed during the school year. Launching the program with a pep rally is a great way to encourage kids to participate.”

Students who hand in their logs or participate in the Schuylerville Public library program will receive a certificate and reward at an assembly this fall.
