Ahoy Matey, for all students in K-5th grades in the 65th District. Participating students must read 10 books of their choosing, and return their completed reading lists to Rep. Andersson’s district office by August 21st to be invited to a special recognition party in the fall.
Last year’s program had over 60 children participate, and Andersson hopes to continue the momentum of reading success. Last September, Rep. Andersson hosted the children and their families at a pizza party where each child received a special certificate of recognition and he is looking forward to doing the same this fall.
“I am excited to hold my second summer reading program to promote continued learning during the summer,” said Andersson. “It is so important to keep kids excited about reading in the months off school, and I hope this program will do just that. Ahoy Matey encourages reading in a fun way, to really engage the students and drive their love of reading.”
