Summer reading includes celebrity guests
06/11/2020

summer readingSan Antonio ISD is hosting two reading programs for students this summer – online book clubs with surprise celebrity readings and a bus-stop initiative called Roll into Reading.

The Summer Book Clubs will run six weeks from June 10 through July 23. Students are invited to join a book club for their grade level, from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. The clubs will bring together a community of readers to discuss their books and share ideas. 

Book selections include online options from the Tumblebooks digital collection, as well as printed books. Students who have registered for the fall by June 12 will receive a shipment of books in print to their homes.

Special guests will occasionally drop in to visit students during the online club meetings. These surprise celebrities will read to students, or among older students, discuss ideas in the selected books.

 

The following is the schedule of club meetings:

 

Tuesdays: PK-2nd grade, English/Spanish
Wednesdays: 3rd-5th grade, English/Spanish
Thursdays: 6th-8th grade, English/Spanish


Roll into Reading is a neighborhood book giveaway for students in prekindergarten through fifth grade. The books are being provided through Book Buddies, a new program of the SAISD Foundation. SAISD school buses are scheduled to visit school bus stops near these campuses on these dates:

June: 16: Arnold and Baskin 
June 18: Ball, Forbes, Sarah King and Lowell 
June 23: Cameron, Pershing, Lamar and Washington
June 25: Woodlawn Hills, Huppertz, Mission, and Foster
July 7: Bonham, Margil, and Hirsch
July 9: Democracy Prep, Highland Hills, Japhet, and Highland Park
July 14: Madison and Crockett

Most importantly, students who benefit from Roll into Reading, as well as students throughout the District, are encouraged to join the book clubs. Find out soon who the first celebrity reader will be!
