Summer Reading Information

Young Five through 3rd Grade

Kids Read Now

Holly Area Schools has recently partnered with Kids Read Now to prevent the summer reading slide and close the achievement gap. All students in grades Y5-3 will be participating in the program that begins this spring and runs through the end of August.  Students choose nine, new, free books they want to read over the summer. Each elementary school will hold a Family Reading Night where students receive their first three books. Each time a student completes a book, parents contact Kids Read Now by phone, text, or online, and the next book is shipped directly to their home.  Read a book - get a book - all summer long! Enjoy the journey to better grades and a lifelong love of learning! To learn more about Kids Read Now, view the How it Works video.

 

4th and 5th Grade

Summer Reading

Holly Area Schools is also providing summer reading books for all students in grades 4 and 5.  All students chose five books to check out over the summer. Each elementary building is holding a Family Reading Night where students in grades 4 and 5 will take home three of the books they chose at school. Students stop at school to return books they have read and to pick up the next two books (see schedule below). For each book returned to school, students are entered into a drawing for a brand new HP Chromebook!  Exiting 5th graders can return books to Holly Middle School at Schedule Pick-Up and Registration on August 21-23. Keep reading - all summer long! Enjoy the journey to better grades and a lifelong love of learning.
