Summer Reading

This summer The Harrison Central School District has developed various summer reading opportunities for students.  Research reminds us that reading year-round is a key element in developing life-long readers and learners.  Summer reading helps to increase students’ reading stamina, build student appreciation for reading and enhance skills developed during the school year.

We invite students to explore new places, meet new characters, and experience adventures-- through reading. Sometimes it is just about finding the perfect book, a character that we can connect to, a mystery that leaves us wanting more. This summer we encourage all of our students to find a great series, an author they love, a character they admire and read as much as they can. 

The Harrison Public Libraries in Harrison and West Harrison also have a great selection of texts as well as events to promote reading.  Please use these hyperlinks to find information about the Imagine Your Story program for students in grades K-8  and the Teen/Adult Summer Reading Program for high school students.  

Have a wonderful, safe, and relaxing summer.
