Drop Off Completed Summer Reading Challenge Forms
Children who have completed the Summer Reading Challenge during their summer vacation have been encouraged by Assemblywoman Audrey I. Pheffer to drop off their completed forms so that they may receive their certificates.
"This Challenge offered children the opportunity to continue reading and learning, even though school was out for the summer," said Pheffer.
To encourage children to continue reading during the summer, Pheffer offers her annual Summer Reading Challenge. Those interested receive a brochure with a calendar and 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, the child earns a New York State Assembly Excellence in Reading Certificate. Along with the calendar, the brochure contains a list of suggested reading material for each stage of childhood to assist parents in the choice of books.
"Reading is an important tool for success, and the students who participate in this challenge demonstrate that they are committed to making education a priority," said Pheffer.
Students may stop by either of Pheffer's district offices, 90-16 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, Rockaway Beach, or 108-14 Crossbay Boulevard, Ozone Park, to drop off the completed forms or to receive a new copy if needed.
