Let’s keep our students reading all summer long! Check out the Vanderlyn Library website. At the top are three tabs. Students have yearlong access to the online resources listed on the home page. Rising 4th and 5th grade students have the opportunity to try out for our Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl (see that tab for details). Check out the summer reading tab for additional resources.
I wish everyone a fun and relaxing summer sprinkled with reading!
