 Beavers Are Achievers!

Proven Cure for Summer Reading Loss

All it takes is FOUR!  Did you know?  By reading four or more books over the summer, kids can avoid the "summer slide," or gap in academic skills, when they return to school in the fall.

Let Them Choose!  Forget asking kids to read the latest Newbery tearjerker.  According to a Scholastic survey, 91% of kids are more likely to finish books they choose themselves.

Top of the TESTS!  Kids who read a million words a year score in the top 2% on standardized tests.  A million words may sound like a lot, but it's only about 25 average-length novels.

Big Vocabularies!  Kids learn 4,000-12,000 new words every year reading.  That means three months without books can make a huge difference in their vocabularies and test scores.

Lets continue to encourage our students to get a good night's rest, have a good breakfast, and do their very best on testing the next 2 weeks!
