Dear parents,

Happy Summer!  I hope you and your family have a wonderful summer filled with adventure, play and lots of quiet reading time.  I urge you to take time each and every day to read with your kids.  Study after study proves that there is no greater indicator of academic success than time spent on pleasure reading.

In the sidebar on the right are links to lists and lists and lists of recommended books for each grade level.  This summer we are asking every CRS student to read at least one book from a required reading list.  These books represent themes that fall under the overarching theme of cultural competency - social justice, diversity, and empathy.  In addition, students entering grades 3- 8 will have a separate reading assignment prepared by their classroom teacher. You will also find links to those assignments in the sidebar as well.

Happy Reading,
Marta Willett
