Memorial School-Summer Reading Challenge

A message from Principal Ryan McCluskey:


For Memorial School’s Summer Reading Challenge, I would like to encourage all of our 4th and 5th graders to read 10 titles this summer. They can be chapter books, picture books, magazines, newspapers, recipes, directions to a new game, poetry, song lyrics, comic books, etc. Summer Reading Library Cards with directions for the challenge on the back are being sent home with this year’s fourth and fifth graders during the last week of school. Be sure to look for them and encourage your child to participate in order to be eligible for some cool prizes when they return them during the first week back to school in the fall!
