Summer READ! Program

Irving’s SUMMER READ! Program is back!!!   Rising 7th graders and rising 8th grade students have the opportunity to participate in our SUMMER READ! Program this year.  Students pick books of their choice that meet the requirements of our reading “Bingo” card, and report via Google Form when they’ve finished reading each one.  For each book completed, students earn 1 ticket that is put into a raffle and earn 1 point for their school team for the 2022-2023 school year.  Students may earn up to 24 tickets.  Four student winners will be drawn from the tickets that are earned throughout the summer.  The prizes are $25 Barnes & Noble gift cards!

If you’re looking for book suggestions, you may want to visit the What to Read Next external website, where you may browse and read summaries of books of many different reading levels and content areas and decide if you’d like to borrow these titles from a public library to read.
