Fifth Grade Summer Reading Program

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 of three books.
 
Students in Fifth Grade who participate will complete a list of books read. The documentation is to include the name of the author, the title of the book, an explanation of the general topic or plot of the book, and a parent or guardian statement that the student has completed the reading.
 
Fifth Grade students who participate in Prince William County Public Library's Summer Reading Program, the Public Library documentation will apply. Students will receive an extra “A” (100) for each book completed, for a total of three. 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 may be used. Participation in the PWC Public Library Summer Reading Program and its documentation is also acceptable.
