    Summer Reading

    Why Should Students Read During The Summer? 

    The purpose of the PWCS Summer Reading Program is to encourage students to enjoy quality literature and to continue developing their independent reading skills. Summer is a great time for students to read for pleasure and dive deep into their favorite genre or experience something new. Providing students with a choice in what they read increases their reading motivation and engagement.

    Benefits to support the summer reading leap:

    • Build vocabulary
    • Develop reading skills
    • Enjoy new stories
    • Learn new information
