Pheffer Offers Summer Reading Challenge
Assemblywoman Audrey I. Pheffer is offering a Summer Reading Challenge to students during their summer vacation from school. "Just because school is out doesn't mean we have to stop learning or reading," stated Assemblywoman Pheffer.
To encourage children to continue reading during the summer, the Assemblywoman has set up the Summer Reading Challenge. If interested, you will receive a brochure with a calendar. The calendar contains a box for each day in July and August. When there are 40 or more days marked off with 15 minutes or more of reading on each day, your child will have earned a New York State Assembly Excellence in Reading Certificate. The certificate will be presented at a school ceremony in September or mailed to you directly.
Along with the calendar, the brochure contains a list of suggested reading material for each stage of childhood to assist in your choice of books.
To receive a brochure and entry form, you may stop by either of Assemblywoman Pheffer's district offices at 90-16 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, Rockaway Beach; or 108-14 Crossbay Boulevard, Ozone Park. When the calendar is completed, please follow the instructions and return to either office.
To quote Walt Disney, "There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates' loot on Treasure Island ... and best of all, you can enjoy these riches every day of your life."
