R1 Summer Reading Expectations

The purpose of summer reading for students at both the middle and high school levels is to assist with developing the
life-long habit of reading. Summer reading encourages the enjoyment of reading and develops students’ abilities to
choose books for themselves. The Office of Secondary Education supports students being able to read and explore
genres and topics of their own interest. By allowing students to practice choosing books, self-regulating when and where
they read, and sustaining reading over the summer months, our hope is that students’ identities as readers will continue
to grow.
The students’ choice of reading will also foster a vibrant and diverse community of readers upon their return to school.
Their summer reading experience will stimulate exciting conversations about books both with their peers,
parents/guardians, and with their teachers, as well as expand their perspectives and stimulate their understanding of
the world around them.
The information below provides resources for parents/guardians and students and ways to access books. We ask that
you encourage your child to read throughout the summer.
