Summer Readers…Celebrate Reading 2015
Dear John B. Dey Students and Parents,
Summer vacation is right around the corner and we know you all are looking forward to many exciting times! Below are
several opportunities to help encourage summer reading throughout the upcoming months.
At John B. Dey, we will be sponsoring our annual summer reading club. We have updated the club requirements so
please be sure to look at the documents carefully. Students entering Kindergarten–Second Grade are asked to read OR be
read to for a minimum of 10 books or chapters. Students entering Third Grade-Fifth Grade are asked to read a minimum of
TWO chapter books.
Record the titles and complete the writing assignment on the attached reading sheets. If extra space is needed, attach
a piece of paper and continue listing book titles. In September, students who return the reading record by September 14 will
be invited to a Summer Readers’ Celebration.
The Virginia Beach Public Libraries are also sponsoring a Summer Reading Challenge. Participants spend the summer
reading, attending free programs such as special story times, and winning prizes. Be sure to stop by the local library and sign-
up for this program or register on-line at
Each participant receives rewards upon completion of the
program. This program begins on June 8 and runs through August 8, 2015.
In addition, Barnes and Noble ( ) sponsors a summer reading program. Students who read a
set number of books and return the completed log to the local store will receive a free book! You may count the same
books for all three programs. Scholastic books also has some fun summer reading information –Power Up and Read- at
More information about reading at home, suggested books, and fun activities are listed on the John B. Dey website at
under the Summer Reading link. Thank you for joining us in these important educational
opportunities. We look forward to our fun together in September 2015. Remember that reading with your child is a gift you
can give every single day!
