Dear Parents and Guardians,


    This summer, the DVES Reading Team is encouraging your child to read for at least 20 minutes each day. Summer reading will help your child to maintain their current reading abilities and avoid a decline over the summer months. Reading just 20 minutes a day adds up big time! 


    Please use the Summer Reading Challenge and Read Everywhere! sheets for reading ideas. These activities will help your child have a blast while reading this summer and help them to be ready to return to school in the fall.


    Please have your child complete the following:


    • Track Your Reading Minutes: Goal 1,000 Minutes! 


    Your child will hand in the Track Your Reading Minutes to the reading teachers by September 1, 2023 for  a fun prize! Thank you for your continued support in your child’s education.
