Summer is coming!  That means school-aged children will have more time than ever to READ many great books. Oakridge Public Schools will be offering our summer reading program again. The goal of the program is to maintain reading achievement over the summer months by simply engaging students in independent and monitored reading.

Oakridge Upper Elementary School Library
Wednesdays starting June 20 – August 2 from 10:00 a.m. – Noon

How to participate:

  • Fill out the bottom portion of this permission slip and return it to your child’s teacher or school office.
  • Students are encouraged to attend the program every Wednesday to take Accelerated Reader quizzes on the books s/he has read the previous week. Then, students will check out new books, participate in an activity, and earn prizes.
  • Families are encouraged to attend with their child.  Readers and their family are welcome to stay for the entire two hours, or less if they wish.
  • During the week, listen to your child read his/her book(s) aloud and/or ask questions about the book to ensure they understand it.  Reading picture books more than once is even better!
  • FREE lunch will be offered on Wednesdays at the Upper Elementary building. FREE lunch will also be served on the remaining weekdays at Oakridge High School. Serving times will be communicated using our SchoolMessenger system and social media.   
  • Back by popular demand…students will be able to take Accelerated Reader quizzes at home and at the Egelston Public Library (a library card is required for computer access).

We love hosting classroom celebrations, but we also want to be sensitive to allergies that may affect other students. That’s why we have created an acceptable snack list for our peanut free/nut free classrooms. In fact, the upper elementary building is a latex-free & peanut-free building. If you would like additional information about acceptable snacks for your child’s classroom, please contact your child’s teacher for more guidelines.
