Scholastic Summer Reading Program
As summer approaches, kids look forward to their time off, but there’s one thing kids shouldn’t take a break from over the summer: reading. Parents can sign kids up to be part of the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge.

Camp Newsela: Student Edition
As a student, you can join one or more of the Camp Newsela groups.  These Newsela groups are reading clubs, and a club leader at Newsela will assign two interesting informational articles a week over the summer based on the club topic.  You can join one, two, or all of them!   Report your club activity to your ELA teacher to show you participated.

Taking on the Summer Reading Challenge is simple. Students with an existing Newsela account are automatically entered in the challenge. Students new to Newsela can sign up using Student Code: 83AUMJ.
