Summer Reading Challenge:

The Thomas County School System wants students to READ this summer! Did you know that students can have up to a 2-3 month loss in reading ability over the summer? It's important for students to spend time sharpening their reading skills!

Each school in our system has developed a summer reading challenge for students. We would like for students to read for 15-30 minutes every day this summer. The guidelines and requirements are listed on the flyer below:
