Summer Reading MAGIC
Grades > PK-8

It's summer time! Time for all of your favorite activities: relaxing, playing, and ... READING! In the summer, you can read whatever you want AND be rewarded for it!

It's super fun and super easy. All you have to do is keep track of the days over the summer when you read for at least twenty minutes. It’s that simple! The library will even provide you with a calendar to keep track of your time.

You can read whatever you want to read: fiction and nonfiction books, picture books and chapter books, comic books and graphic novels, poetry books, arts & crafts books, magazines, and newspapers will all count toward your twenty minutes per day.

Here are the rewards you can earn:

  • For 30 days of reading (at least 20 minutes a day): A Tiger Day (date to be determined in the fall)

  • For 45 days of reading (at least 20 minutes a day): A mystery bag of goodies (and a Tiger Day)

  • For 60 days of reading (at least 20 minutes a day): Pizza in the Library for lunch (plus a Tiger Day and goodie bag)

And, in addition to winning a Tiger Day, a mystery bag, and a pizza party, (and not to mention becoming so much smarter from so much reading!), all those students who read at least 60 days this summer will be entered into a drawing to win a $50 gift card to Barnes and Noble!

You can keep track of your reading on the printable summer calendar that can be accessed HERE. Please bring your calendar with you when you come back to school in August. It can be turned in to the library or to your homeroom teacher. You can also e-mail a scanned copy to Ms. Kaitlin Ward at kward@darlingtonschool.org.  

If you have any questions about this program, please feel free to email Kaitlin Ward at kward@darlingtonschool.org.
