2018 Summer Reading
20 Minutes a Day Keeps the Summer Slide Away
"Summer slide" is the tendency for students to lose some of the achievement gains they made during the previous school year. The good news is that preventing summer slide is as easy as reading for 20 minutes a day over the summer. The best news is that children who read for 20 minutes a day over the summer can make a "summer leap" and actually make reading gains!

WHAT TO DO WITH THE LAZY DAYS OF SUMMER???
Plano ISD promotes a program called REFLECTIONS every year - you've most likely heard of it. This program is all about creative thinking and offers students opportunities to display their creativity in visual arts, photography, literature, dance choreography, film production, and music composition.
Once we are into the swing of the new school year, students often want to participate in this program but just don't have the time. This might be the perfect long-term project for the summer. We know we have so many talented students and we hope that by giving you the details of next year's program, in advance, we might have lots more entries.
The 2018-2019 theme: Heroes Around Me
Deadline to enter: October 31, 2018
Six Categories: visual arts, photography, literature, dance choreography, film production, and music composition
