Summer Learning Rising Grade PK

Join Us in Our All-School Summer “Big Read”

In continuing a Carmel Campus tradition, all PK-8 students and their families are invited to read and learn together through a dynamic engagement with literature. When we return to campus in August, our learning community will engage in a range of campus-wide activities associated with these books in ways that support our School’s mission and core values. 

This summer’s “Big Read” will focus on the works of Jacqueline Woodson, an award-winning author best known for her National Award-Winning memoir, Brown Girl Dreaming.

Guidelines for Reading Success

  • Give your child choice in the books they select

  • Use family involvement to encourage and monitor reading

  • Make Summer reading fun and help children sustain their reading skills.

  • Promote a love of reading by balancing high interest books, audiobooks, and family read alouds with books at your child’s independent reading level.
