DUBLIN CITY SCHOOLS SUMMER READING PROGRAM
Dublin City Schools believes literacy involves reading, writing, speaking, listening, and thinking. As we prepare our students for skills needed to be successful in the 21st Century, it is important that we provide opportunities for our students to engage in the activities that will help build this literacy skill set. Reading over the summer is a good way to practice English and prepare to participate in a shared literacy community in the fall.
Students entering grade 6 through 12 are asked to read 2 books during the summer. Please see the link below to access the summer reading lists for the 2019 - 2020 school year.
