AGI Summer Reading
We expect that all students will read, read, read this summer! It is critical that students read throughout the summer to keep up their skills and to develop a love of reading and learning.
We have partnered with Barnes and Noble for our summer reading program.
Here is how it works:
- A student reads books and completes a summer reading journal.
- A student turns in a summer reading journal to any Barnes and Noble store and chooses a free book (see book lists in the journal).
- Repeat steps 1 and 2. There is no limit to the number of summer reading journals a student can submit to earn a free book!
- Students entering grades 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grades were given a copy of the summer reading journal at the end of the school year.

Students entering grades 5 and 6, join a Reading Olympics team!
Chester County Reading Olympics is a countywide reading event that encourages students to increase the quality and quantity of books they read for enjoyment. The Reading Olympics Program is based upon the belief that good reading habits form the foundation for a productive and successful life. In addition to helping students develop a habit of daily reading for pleasure, the Chester County Reading Olympics provides students with the opportunity to have interactive discussions with their peers on the content of the books. Students can sign up to participate in the fall of 2016 but can use the summer to start reading the titles on the Reading Olympics lists!
