To keep young minds active during the summer break from school, I am offering students who will enter first through sixth grades in the fall of 2024 an opportunity to participate in my summer literacy learning program.

Students need to exercise their brains. Just like exercising keeps muscles in shape, reading keeps the brain in shape. If students don’t read over the summer, they do not retain all they learned the previous school year and lose literacy skills.

Students entering first through sixth grades are challenged to read eight books over the course of the summer. Books over 200 pages may count as two books. Once a student has completed the readings, a summer reading form should be filled out and signed by a parent or guardian. The form can be accessed at https://senatorlewis.com/LewisSummerReading. The form is printable.

Those who complete my summer reading challenge will receive an official certificate of recognition from the Illinois Senate and an invitation to an ice cream party. I hope to have strong participation by students who recognize the value of a great book.

Forms should be returned by August 4th to be eligible for the recognition. For additional information, please contact my district office at (630) 349-0645.
