Swain Campus Summer Reading Lists

June 16, 2022

With a theme of "belonging," the Swain Campus summer reading lists are now available. 

Summer is the perfect time to relax, unwind, and READ! The goal of the summer reading program is to support our students as they discover and develop a love of reading. We also believe that summer is a great opportunity to dive into great reads that will prepare students for our 2022-2023 school year. In addition to the required summer reading, we encourage students to read other books that simply interest them. What is most important is that our students read, read, and read some more! There is nothing like the world of books to expand our world, and reading can be done inside and outside, in any weather!

Student is Preschool though third grade are encourage to select books from the summer reading selections linked below. Students and families can read these books together and have discussions related to the theme of "Belonging" and how it both relates to the book and to them.
