Summer reading initiative brought to you by the Schenectady City School District and community partners.
With this summer reading initiative, students will be engaged throughout the summer with reading "pop-up book clubs" within the community. In addition, this initiative will expose students to culturally relevant and high interest titles that will be quick to engage any reader. Having these events within the community de-stigmatizes reading as "work," but instead, celebrates the excitement, and fun that reading can provide for students.
-De-stigmatize the term "summer reading" by celebrating #schenectadyreads
-Every teacher share in their love for reading at kickoff events and volunteer at Book Mobile stops
-Work with community during the summer to arrange planned bookmobile stops and celebrations
