    Summer Reading Challenge

    Attention all Students!

    Summer is almost here and what better way to while away those long days and nights then curled up with a good book? Avoid the dreaded "summer slide" and keep your minds and imaginations engaged as you explore new stories and adventures.  Keep track of the minutes read each day and complete the Summer Reading Challenge log. Bring it back to school or e-mail it to by September 6.  All students who complete 1,000 or more pages will be awarded a certificate of recognition at assembly. In addition top readers from each grade will win a special luncheon with Mrs Choe and Ms. Evans.  All students who submit a book review will be entered to win a $25 gift card to next fall's Mrs. Nelson's Book Fair!

    This year we will not be distributing paper copies of the reading logs. Please download and print the reading log and book review forms.  A few paper copies will also be available in the main building hallway.

    Any questions? Please feel free to reach Anne at or Jennifer at

    Happy Reading!
    Anne Arikian and Jennifer Holmberg,
    Mar Vista PTA Education Co-Chairs
