Summer Reading for Elementary Students

Did you know that educational research shows that students who have learning experiences in the summer are less likely to fall behind their peers in educational growth? 

The West Valley Schools Foundation, a non-profit organization, has partnered with the West Valley School District to offer SUMMER READING FOR ELEMENTARY STUDENTS – completely free and promising to be fun and educational! 

Who:  Any and all current West Valley School District Kindergarten through 4th Grade students and their families, from all six elementary schools, as well as volunteer high school students from West Valley High School.

What:  West Valley Summer Reading for Elementary Students – students may check out up to 3 books at a time all summer long.

When:  EVERY TUESDAY MORNING during the summer – any time between 10:00 am and 12:00 noon.

Where:  Wide Hollow Elementary School Library (1000 S. 72nd Ave)

Why:  This will be an opportunity to check-out books, participate in learning activities, and listen to high school students read stories to the elementary students.

Cost:  FREE – there is no cost for West Valley Summer Reading for Elementary Students!!!  This opportunity is provided by a partnership between the West Valley Schools Foundation and the West Valley School District!

School staff will be available to check-out books, answer questions, and facilitate the Summer Reading for Elementary Students.  There are only two requirements to participate:

1.  The student must be a current Kindergarten through 4th Grade student in the West Valley School District.

2.  The student’s family member or designee must accompany the student each time they come to Wide Hollow Elementary.

Students may drop-in to the library with their family member or designee whenever it is convenient for them on Tuesday mornings during the summer, any time between 10:00 am and 12:00 noon.

Note:  with the district-wide library system, a student from any elementary school in West Valley can check-out a book from the Wide Hollow library during the summer.  We appreciate the support of the West Valley Schools Foundation to make Summer Reading available for all of our elementary students.  Thank you!!!
