Kindergarten Summer Reading Program 2014
Fannie W. Fitzgerald Elementary School
 
The purpose of the PWCS Summer Reading Program is to encourage students to enjoy quality literature and to continue developing their independent reading skills. Student participation in the program is voluntary. Students who choose to participate in the program are required to complete a minimum number of readings over the summer.
Students participating in the program in Kindergarten will complete a list of books read. The documentation should include the name of the author, the title of the book, and a parent or guardian statement that the student has completed the reading.  
For Kindergarten students who participate in Prince William County Public Library's Summer Reading Program, the Public Library documentation will apply.
 
Students in Kindergarten will receive an extra S+ for each book completed, for a maximum total of five.
Completion of the summer reading will be recorded for students by the end of the second week of school.
The following titles are suggestions for summer reading. Other books selected by the student with guidance from a parent/guardian and/or librarian are also acceptable. Participation in the PWC Public Library Summer Reading Program and its documentation is also acceptable.
