Summer Reading Information

Summer Reading

Read S’More Books this summer!!!

We are excited to let you know about a Reading Incentive BINGO card activity we have for all students at LRE this summer. Your child will hear about this BINGO activity, and will hopefully come home excited about reading this summer.
The BINGO card will be sent home with your child the end of May or early June. There will also be copies available on the LRE webpage for you to print out or in the office this summer. All BINGO cards will be due back to LRE Media Center by September 5th, 2018 in order to be eligible for prizes. We want to thank PTA for supporting this program each year.

LRE Media Center Summer Hours:
We will have our school library open every other week this summer. Students will be able to check­out books from our LRE library. This is beneficial because students are very comfortable with our library. This program will be open to LRE students and their siblings. We encourage parents, grandparents, and sitters to bring their children to the LRE library on these dates:

June 14th            9-11 am
June 28               9-11am & 5-7pm
July 12                9-11am & 5-7 pm
July 26                9-11 am
August 9             9-11am & 5-7 pm
August 23           9-11 am

*All books will be due the day of Open House, Wednesday, August 27th.
You may drop off books anytime in the office or media center during the summer.

Safety is a major concern for us at LRE so we are asking that students do come with an adult. It may be a parent, neighbor, daycare provider, or relative. There will not be any patrols or parents supervising the outside area.

Ideas for Encouraging Summer Reading

*Checkout the public library as well as Barnes & Noble for reading incentive programs this summer. We also want to support our Independent bookstore in St. Paul, Red Balloon Bookstore on Grand Avenue. All of these establishments have wonderful reading incentive programs for students and the students can double dip these programs with our LRE reading incentive program.
