Take the Summer Reading Challenge
Avoid the "Summer Slide". Summer Slide is an actual concept referring to something that many students experience if they do not keep their mind active in reading during the summer. Research shows that a child could lose at least one month of the reading progress they made at school if they skip reading all summer. Let's not let the summer slip by without reading. Iroquois Elementary teachers, along with Mr. Bronson and Miss Grande are inviting you to take the Summer Challenge. Take some time to read this summer. It's simple.
All you have to do is...
- Read 15 minutes a day for 15 days each month and log it on the calendar. (Download Calendar HERE)
- Turn your reading log in to Mrs. Vrenna (in the library) by Friday, September 9 and receive a coupon for a McDonald’s Happy Meal!

Just because the school bell has rung, doesn't mean the learning and fun have to end. At Play & Learn, a new after-school program for Iroquois elementary children and their parents or after-school caregiver, Y staff will show how children learn through age-appropriate play and active engagement. We'll share oodles of learning ideas for home or on the go.
Play & Learn is a FREE after-school program that children ages Kindergarten through 3rd grade and parent/caregiver attend together that includes weekly themed activities that extend learning beyond the classroom.
