A letter from Katie O’Connor, Distinctive Schools Director of Curriculum and Instruction:
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and all that Chicago has to offer this time of year! If you haven’t done so already please visit your local library to begin participating in the Chicago Public Library summer reading challenge. The challenge is part of the Distinctive Schools Anytime Anywhere Learning program. Participating is simple: visit your local library, read 20 minutes per day and complete activities related to the books you’ve read. It’s that easy! Each child who participates has opportunities to earn prizes through the library as well as at school. Reading 20 minutes each day dramatically reduces summer loss and prepares kids for the upcoming school year. Read, read, read this summer!
Please reach out to Ms. Cotrone (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ms. Santiago (email@example.com) with any questions.
Thanks and enjoy the rest of your summer!
