    SUMMER READING CHALLENGE

    All elementary students (current Kindergarten-fourth graders) are invited to participate in the North Allegheny Elementary Summer Reading Program. To participate, please follow the guidelines below.

    • Choose activities from one of the Challenge Boards: Reading Around the House and Genre Based Challenges. You may choose either board. As you complete each challenge, color in or mark the square.

    • All students who complete 5 challenges in a row (either across, down, or diagonally) will receive a small prize.

    • All students who complete all challenges will be entered into a raffle to win a special prize.

    • Choose books that you enjoy reading and that you are able to read. You may read your own books, including graphic novels, library books, ebooks, and magazines.

    • Books that someone else reads to you or books that you listen to also count. Remember to read for fun!

    • Return to your building librarian by August 25, 2023 to be eligible for prizes.
