2022 CPES Summer Reading Program
Each summer we encourage our students to continue to read during the summer. As an incentive we provide brief, fun activities for students to complete as they read over the summer. Students should bring in their completed activity sheet to turn in at the Back to School event in August or to their new teacher during the first week of school to receive a prize.
Please click on this announcement to access links to the Summer Reading Letter that has more details and the grade level activity sheets.
