Summer Reading Skills Programs by Fordham

Last week students were sent home with a flyer regarding Summer Reading Skills programs sponsored by Fordham.  I have attached the flyer for everyone’s review: Summer Reading Skills Program Flyer.

Summer Reading Program sponsored by Senator Jordan and the NYS Senate:

As we know, reading unlocks so many doors and opportunities for students to use their imagination and become part of a book or novel they are reading.  To encourage students to read over the summer, and lessen the potential of summer regression, the NYS Senate has sponsored a summer reading program for students.  Please click here to download the flyer for your review: Summer Reading Program 2021.

Thank you for your continued support of Genet, the Genet Team and myself.  I wish you all the best this long holiday weekend and look forward to seeing all of our students back at Genet on Wednesday, June 2!
