What does the research say about reading books over the summer?

“Regardless of ethnicity, socioeconomic level, or personal achievement, children who read FOUR or more books over the summer fare better on reading-comprehension tests in the fall than their peers who read one or no books over the summer.”

   -Jimmy Kim, Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk

In order to check out books for the summer, students must meet the following criteria:

•Be a rising 10th, 11th, or 12th-grade student at PRHS for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year

• Return all materials borrowed during the current school year (all books due Wednesday, May 15th)

• Have a clean library record: all materials must be returned and all fines/lost books paid

•  Sign and turn in the Consent form in the Media Center

• Return all summer checkouts to the Media Center Aug. 9, 2019
