Summer Family Reading Challenge

(Click the link above to download the packet)

It is so important for reading to be a steady part of family time especially in the summer months.  To encourage family reading, I am proposing a summer family reading challenge.  Families that participate in the challenge, will be entered into a drawing for your family to win an all inclusive “pool party” with my family this summer along with a $25 gift certificate to Scholastic or Amazon to purchase new books for your family library.  Here are the rules:

  1. Upload a picture of your family reading this summer onto our Paton Churdan Facebook page.  This can be a picture of fun,  creative ways you are reading this summer, celebrating your families favorite book, your family reading in your book nook/reading corner, ANYTHING!!!
  2. Download the Summer Reading Challenge Packet (located on our website homepage or pick one up in the school office and complete its contents and return it to the school office or to Mrs. Smith at 345 U Avenue, Paton, IA 50217 or email it back to me at  Note that the individual book lists are only for grades K-5 but you can modify it to fit any age level or choose from your own reading lists. 
  3. Read, Read, and Read!!! Reading for just 20 minutes each day can make a huge difference in preventing the summer slide!


(Note:  Lunch times have changed to 11:30- 12:30)
