PVSD SUmmeR Reading 2024

Summer Reading Heading

What's the purpose?

Perkiomen Valley School District believes it is critical for students to foster positive reading habits in order to develop as lifelong learners.  The district’s summer reading program encourages students to read high-interest, self-selected texts.  After all, summer reading is a great opportunity for students to explore personal interests, various genres, and topics they want to know more about while discovering their own “just right” books.  As an added bonus, reading high-interest materials prepares students for the demands of college and career-reading.  Research strongly suggests that reading skills improve with practice and weaken when not exercised.  So why have a summer reading program?  The program exists to inspire a lifelong love of reading and to maintain and sharpen one’s reading and thinking skills.
