Student participation in the program is voluntary. Students who choose to participate in the program are required to complete a minimum of five books.
Students participating in the program in Second Grade will complete a list of books read. The documentation is to include the name of the author, the title of the book, and a parent or guardian signature indicating that the student has completed the reading.
Second Grade students who participate in Prince William County Public Library's Summer Reading Program, the Public Library documentation will apply.
Students in Second Grade who read a minimum of five books will receive an extra S+ for each book completed, for a total of five. The summer reading documentation will be submitted by the student by the end of the first 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.
