Summer Reading

Throughout the school year, we encourage students to read a variety of books and resources to expose them to different genres. This also allows students independence in making choices about what he/she wants to learn. Summertime is a great opportunity to continue this type of personalized learning as a family. Scholastic shares Three ways to prevent summer slide to help you get started. 

Richland Library is kicking off their annual Summer Learning Challenge on June 1st where children and adults earn points for reading and attending public library events. Children and adults exchange points for prizes. At BMS, we encourage students to track their summer reading  and return a completed summer reading log in the fall at the start of school. Students that turn in a completed summer reading log are invited to a summer reading celebration held at the school during the school day. ​
