APS summer reading program

Submitted by on June 14, 2019 – 12:30 amNo Comment

Alpena Public Schools is offering a summer reading program for young children who are currently in junior kindergarten through first grade.

Packets being sent home with kids include nine books aligned to their reading level, as well as a journal to practice writing. The journal includes QR codes that parents can scan to receive discussion questions to use with their child.

There will also be summer “check-ins” that take place at the library or can be done virtually. Dates for the check-ins have not yet been announced.

APS officials remind parents that literacy builds the foundation for a child’s future academic success and economic well-being. The summer program is just one tool that can help children develop vital reading skills.
