To Read: Students are encouraged to read, read, and read some more! Read independently! Read with someone! Have someone read to you! Read books, magazines, newspapers, websites, or whatever is of interest to you - and read everyday!
To Share: go to https://Todaysmeet.com/LetsReadBears and write share what you’ve been reading. As you share what you are reading, your name will be entered in a drawing for prizes. The more you enter, the better your chances of winning!
Larchmont Summer Book Exchanges
To grow as readers, it is important that students read books that they choose, enjoy, and can actually read. Therefore, we invite you to come to our Summer Book Exchanges. During our book exchanges, staff and parent volunteers will come together to share books, enjoy treats, do crafts, and draw for prizes. This is an opportunity to borrow some great and appropriately leveled books for summer reading. Summer Book Exchanges are on select Wednesdays from 4:30-5:30pm on the dates listed below:
July 26, 2017 – Larchmont Lemonade Stand – Come out and enjoy some lemonade and treats as you borrow books for summer reading!
August 9, 2017 – Larchmont Ice Cream Delight – Make your own ice cream sundae and borrow books for summer reading!
August 16, 2017 – Larchmont Popcorn Puzzle Day – Enjoy some popcorn and solve different puzzles while you borrow books for summer reading!
A Final Note About Summer Reading
During the summer months, students who practice reading improve their proficiency, whereas, students who do not practice reading typically suffer setbacks in reading. In fact, each of the 78 Larchmont students who registered for summer reading last year, each student either maintained or demonstrated growth in reading when they returned to school in the fall. This summer, we would like increase last year’s number by more than 25% by registering at least 100 students!
This summer I am confident that our students will continue to learn and grow during the summer months as they engage in various summer experiences. Please be sure to make Larchmont Summer Reading a part of your child’s summer – just register, read and share!

Our students’ learning growth is a result of time and the collective efforts of our teachers, students, and parents. Working together, we can meet our students at their current stage of development and encourage them to reach their fullest potential.
