Washburn Reads - Summer Reading Program 2017

Summer Reading

We are excited to announce the Washburn Reads Summer Reading Program! Every incoming Washburn student is expected to read at least one book over the summer. Upon their return to school, students will be asked to write an essay and/or engage in discussion about the required reading.

Fostering a love of and a healthy habit of reading is one our main objectives. Research shows that all students benefit from summer reading, especially those who are reluctant readers. Summer reading prevents the summer slide, or the regression/loss of academic skills over the course of the summer. Although only one book is required for each grade, each has a list of optional readings that students are encouraged to read as well.

Parents are encouraged to read the books too!
