9.16.18 - The 2018 Summer Reading Challenge was a HUGE success — with 165 students reading a total of 387,204 pages!! That’s more participants and more pages than any of our past years! Our summer readers will be celebrated on Monday, October 1st at Monday Morning Kickoff and then after with some special treats. PLEASE HELP US collect reading/book-themed prizes so we can have a fun raffle at our celebration! All purchased items will be sent directly to the Library Committee. We can't wait to celebrate our amazing summer readers!

 Our wonderful librarian Ms. Keli and the Library Committee are working hard to get the library ready for the students. Classes will start to visit the library on September 25, and in October our library will be ready to fully celebrate reading with thematic and interactive displays that invite student response to literature, our Reading Ranch with a Book Swap Cart for students to donate and take books, and Brown Bag Book Club (optional monthly library lunch club).

9.9.18 - We had the most AWESOME response to our Summer Reading Challenge in the six years that we have been offering this to our students! 165 Kindergarten through 5th Grade Students turned in evidence that qualified them to attend our annual summer reading celebration — reading at least 1000 pages and in at least ten different places! That’s one quarter of our school and more than we’ve ever had participate! And even more impressive, participating Students read a total of 378,204 pages, which is about 68,000 pages more than last year’s record number of pages. Not only did we have more students participate this year, but students read a ton more, with the average number of pages read per student being more than double the 1000 page minimum. A huge thank you to all the parents of our summer readers for supporting your kids’ participation in this program - you’re helping us to create a growing community of summer readers at Arroyo which greatly benefits the short-and long-term academic development of our students! 

Our summer readers will be celebrated on Monday, October 1st at Monday Flag and then after with some special treats. PLEASE HELP US collect reading/book-themed prizes so we can have a fun raffle at our celebration!
