  • Summer Reading Challenge

    Reading is SO Delicious…That is our theme this year for our summer reading challenge.  There is nothing like a good book and there is no better way for your child to prepare for their next year in school than to read!  CPES would like to challenge students to read at least 10 books over the summer.  Along with your child’s report card, you should have received a letter explaining the program and a reading log for your child to complete and return in the fall.  Extra copies will be available in the school office or click on the following link for a copy of the reading log.

    Summer is a great time to visit your local public library.  Fairfax County libraries offer amazing programs for kids and their own summer reading program.  Show your child that reading is important to you and make a special trip to the library each week.  Try picking a book to read and discuss together.  Maybe even create a neighborhood book club.  Don’t forget audio books!  They are a great way to pass time when traveling. 

    If you are in need of some summer reading suggestions, click on the links below:

    3-5 Summer Reading List
    6-8 Summer Reading List
    Don’t forget your child may still access books online at  MyON and Tumblebooks.  For MyON your child will use the login and password they used during the school year.  For Tumblebooks use the word “Fairfax” for the username and password.

    Have a wonderful summer and happy reading!!
