2018 Summer Reading Challenge

Dear Parents and Students,

Begin your summer reading adventure by competing in Mar Vista Elementary PTA’s 1,000-Page Summer Reading Challenge. It’s simple to do! If you read only 20 pages a day for 8 weeks, you will have read more than 1,000 pages! You also have a chance to win a great prize for every book that you review!

Read everywhere! Read in the car, on the bus, or under the covers. Read with your family. When you read with a brother, sister or friend that goes to Mar Vista, it counts double – once for you and once for them! Use the Reading Log and Book Review Forms to keep track of your reading. In August, turn in your completed logs and book reviews to the specially marked box in the main office, or submit via e-mail to cara.pohle@gmail.com. Incomplete or illegible reading logs will not be accepted.

All readers are winners! During an assembly everyone who has read 1,000 pages or more will be recognized and receive a Certificate of Achievement. A special lunch with our librarian, and our principal, Mrs. Choe, will be awarded to the top two readers from each grade 1st-5th who have read the most pages. Additionally, for EACH book you review, your name will be entered into a drawing for a $25 merchant gift card and you’ll have a chance to have your review featured in the Dolphin News!

Looking for great books? Check out these grade-level book suggestions! We’d love to hear what you think of the books you read off this list, and any others you choose, so be sure to write some reviews, too! If you have any questions, please contact Cara Pohle (cara.pohle@gmail.com) or Anne Arikian (aarikian@gmail.com).

Have a great summer and happy reading!
