Summer Reading

In CCISD, it is our goal and expectation that all students continue to read a wide variety of books throughout the summer months. Maintaining a reading habit will engage students in the thinking and practice necessary for success in the next school year, while helping avoid the well-documented “summer slide” many students traditionally experience.
