Reading is the foundation up on which almost all subsequent learning takes place. It is one of the most challenging achievements we ever accomplish and one of the most important. It is our goal at Ojai Valley School to build a foundation for learning and to open windows and doors for our students. Vacation is the perfect time for reinforcing the joy of reading, and summer reading can be a wonderful family pursuit.
While we certainly expect your children to enjoy themselves and relax during the summer months, it is also imperative that they keep their minds engaged and active in order to retain the skills developed during the school year.
Enclosed you will find both helpful suggestions and the requirements that are expected by the classroom teachers for summer reading. Our goal is to motivate and promote a love of independent reading!
