Senator Alesi Announces Summer Reading Program

With the end of the school year rapidly approaching, Senator Alesi is inviting all students in his district to participate in his Summer Reading Program.  Senator Alesi is sponsoring this free program to encourage students throughout our community to continue reading over summer vacation.

The program is designed for students in Grades 4-5 but it is open to any young child in our community who enjoys reading.  To complete Senator Alesi’s reading challenge, students will be asked to read at least three books over the summer and record their thoughts about their chosen works on reading logs that are available below or through Senator Alesi’s office.

The children who return a completed log to Senator Alesi’s office by the end of the summer will receive a Summertime Reading Passport certificate to recognize their efforts.

"Reading is an important and valuable part of every student’s education. It is vital for students to continue reading over the summer months.  It is my hope that this program will give students an incentive to read throughout the summer, providing them with additional building blocks for a strong foundation going into the next school year,” said Senator Alesi.

Any student interested in participating in this program should download a printable copy of the Summer Reading Program log (file below) or call Senator Alesi’s district office at (585) 223-1800.
