  • Select 5 books (JRB) they plan to read this summer
  • Log the books they are reading and share their favorite thing about each book and why they liked it
  • Turn in the completed log at the end of the summer for a free book

Summer Reading Programs

CSE encourages all its students to read every day during the summer! Not only is reading a fun way to pass the long summer days, but it also keeps your brain sharp and prepared for the next school year. There are some truly great summer reading programs available in our community and CSE recommends several of them to all of our families. Check out our Summer Reading Programs page to learn more.
