Albany, NY - May 18, 2015 - Senator Ken LaValle invites all students up to the 8th grade to join the NY State Senate’s 2015 Summer Reading Program. The Senate program, conducted in conjunction with the NY State Library, is designed to help children continue to build their reading skills during the summer months.
Senator LaValle said, “This program can be used to reinforce lessons learned during the year, while keeping young minds sharp during their time away from school. The Summer Reading Program challenges children to continue to learn. It’s my hope that students in my Senate District take advantage of the program over the summer months.”
Students maintain an on-line reading journal to keep track of their progress. Parents and guardians can utilize the website to track children's summer reading activity and share that progress with friends, family, and other parents. Those students submitting a completed journal will receive a Summertime Reading certificate from Senator LaValle recognizing their accomplishment.
