Summer Reading Announcement from the Irwin Altman MS 172 Library
“No more pencil, no more books…..” you know the song…But SUMMER IS A GREAT TIME FOR READING!! In fact, it is essential. Reading over the summer months prevents THE SUMMER SLIDE aka SUMMER BRAIN DRAIN. Student’s reading scores can decline up to six months, if they don’t read over the summer. Reading at least 60 minutes a week can prevent this. And what’s even better is you can read ANYTHING to keep your reading muscles strong. A great place to read is at your local public library’ NY State Summer Reading program. This year’s theme is Every Hero has a Story. Go to your local branch library or sign up online at www.summerreading.org.
But there are lots of other ways to read over the summer. Continuing students can use their MyOn accounts all summer and new students can log on to www.myon.com school name: Irwin Altman MS172 with user name: 172Qmax password: read
