Relax, play, and have fun this summer. Keep reading, too! By reading 20+ minutes a day, students avoid the "summer academic slide" and maintain or advance academic gains. To support summer reading and learning, The Cobb County School District's Library Media Education Department, in conjunction with the Cobb County Public Library, Smyrna Public Library, and Marietta City Schools, is partnering again with Scholastic to participate in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge.
In the summer of 2016, CCSD students logged over 6.5 MILLION minutes of reading!
Summer Reading Benefits
By participating in summer reading programs, studies show that students often maintain or improve reading abilities throughout the summer.
Students are free to choose their summer reading books for the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge. If you're looking for inspiration, we've compiled book suggestions, links to free ebooks, and more!
Cobb County Public Library
The Cobb County Public Library provides a multitude of resources and programming for students throughout the summer. Check them out!
A special congratulations to Dodgen Middle School, whose students logged over 1 million minutes, making them the #1 ranked school in the state of Georgia for summer 2016!
