This summer has flown by! Thanks to the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge, our kids have been busy reading this summer, as well as swimming, bowling and more fun summer activities! Not only have the kids been busy reading, but we’ve had a variety of fun activities to participate in over the past three weeks.

Now in its 9th year, the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge is a free online reading program dedicated to stopping the “summer slide” by encouraging kids to read throughout the summer months when school is out. This year’s challenge theme is “Power Up & Read,” powered by ENERGIZER®.

This year’s challenge theme is “Power Up & Read,” encouraging kids to read all summer long and unlock 12 original short stories by bestselling children’s authors as kids reach reading milestones. Scholastic has joined together with ENERGIZER® to power the Summer Reading Challenge and encourage families to find innovative ways to discover the power and joy of reading. Parents can sign up kids beginning May 4, 2015 and runs through September 4, 2015.

In an effort to log as many minutes as possible through the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge AND to break the world record for summer reading, Scholastic is setting special weekly goals for young readers. Every Monday we’ll be announcing a #MondayMinutesGoal, the number of minutes for kids to read together in one week (by the following Monday).

Whether your child or student is reading independently aloud or together with you, let’s share their success and keep the momentum going! Here’s how:

  • Have your child log his/her minutes on the SRC website or on a paper log/piece of paper
  • Take a picture of him/her proudly displaying their minutes
  • Share it on social using #MondayMinutesGoal and #SummerReading!
