I sent home with students the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library “Curiosity Central” reading program information and tracking sheet. All SMCS students are encouraged to register online and participate in this program during the summer. We have talked about this in library class and I explained how the TSCPL rewards readers with a free book and an entry in their Grand Prize drawing, after 12 hours of reading plus 12 experiences completed with your family.
As an added incentive, all SMCS students who bring this completed tracking sheet back to me in August, signed by a parent, will earn a special pizza lunch in the library! (I do not think the library will award certificates this year, so keep track of this sheet and remember to log your hours online.)
I want to wish all of you a wonderful summer and encourage you to GET CURIOUS and start reading now and especially when the program runs May 29 - August 20!
