Superintendent Kyle Repucci is pleased to share that Rochester School District elementary school students once again will participate in a summer reading program in conjunction with Rochester Public Library.
Rochester School District elementary schools each held summer reading kickoff events from June 8-13, preparing students for a summer of reading outside of the classroom.
In one kickoff event, teachers from the East Rochester School presented a skit to get kids excited about summer reading. The skit was based on the story “Stone Soup” and teaches lessons about working together.
Teachers also spoke to students about the Rochester Public Library’s summer reading theme this year, which is “All Together Now.” The East Rochester School performance team spoke to students about the meaning of the theme and the importance of working together to help families and the community.
All Rochester School District students in grades K-5 were given logs to track their reading progress throughout the summer, and were asked to bring the logs back to school with them in the fall to earn a chance at winning incidents and prizes.
The library also held a kickoff program for summer reading on Monday, June 19, which featured frozen treats, bubbles, and magic by Sages Entertainment, and other activities.
“We want all of our students to continue learning and growing throughout the summer when they are not in school. The Rochester Public Library’s Summer Reading Program is a great boost to our efforts, and they have been a great partner,” said Superintendent Repucci. “I hope all our students enjoy their summer, and enjoy the pleasure of reading as well.”
