Reading is the foundation that leads to academic and personal success for all students. It will improve reading levels of students pre-K through 12 by challenging schools, classrooms and students to read millions of books collectively as a district.
One Million Books was launched district-wide in January 2010 and has since increased to Three Million Books per year! The campaign continues to encourage students to read, but also educates parents, teachers and community members about the importance of reading and the responsibility we share to help students succeed in literacy. When the community is educated and involved, literacy partnerships between nonprofits, businesses and civic, faith and community groups are developed and strengthened.
Here are some reading websites to assist with summer reading:
Guilford County Schools - Summer Reading
The High Point Public Library
The Tumble Book Library
