Students encouraged to participate in summer reading challenge

Schuylerville Elementary School students are being challenged to read for 40 days or more over summer break. It’s all part of the Summer Reading Challenge, in coordination with the New York State Library and sponsored by Assemblywoman Carrie Woerner, who represents Saratoga and Washington counties.

This year, the program is exploring the actions of heroes with “Every hero has a story” selected as the theme. The book suggestions range from superheroes teaching the alphabet, memorable moments in sports, civil war heroes and courageous men and women who have overcome personal obstacles and achieved great things.

HOW THE CHALLENGE WORKS

Mark the provided calendar for each day in July and August that your child reads with you, someone else or alone. Once you have marked off 40 days or more, return the completed form to Assemblywoman Woerner’s office, and she will award your child with a New York State Excellence in reading certificate.
