Summer Reading Programs at Marbletown

Reading with and to your child is the best way to ensure your child’s success. Students often regress over the summer if they do not read. As a result we created a few summer reading programs at Marbletown to support our students and families.    

Summer Book Exchange: The Summer Book Exchange is simply an opportunity for families of Marbletown students heading into grades 1 – 3 to turn in the books that were sent home in June and pick out new ones.  Every Marbletown student was sent home in June with a plastic bag filled with five books to read over the summer. The books are tailored to each child’s reading level. During the summer, those books can be brought to the Marbletown library to be exchanged for new ones. This is a free program. The dates and times to exchange books are as follows: 
Monday, July 11th from 12:00 – 2:00 p.m.                  
Wednesday, July 13th from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. 
Monday, July 25th from 12:00 – 2:00 p.m.                 
Wednesday, July 27th from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. 
Tuesday, August 2nd from 12:00 – 2:00 p.m.                 
Thursday, August 4th from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m.

Summer Literacy: The Summer Literacy program is a program designed to give additional reading support to students moving into 3rd grade. Students selected for this program received a letter from the school. The teachers running the program include Michele Juric, Laurie Knapp, Heidi Racioppo, and Christine Riley. This is a free program. The program runs for three weeks, Monday – Thursday from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m.  
July 18- 21
July 25 – 28 
August 1 – 4

Summer Reading Program: The Summer Reading Program is an opportunity for Rondout Valley CSD students to participate in teacher led reading activities throughout the summer. Students will also have the opportunity to borrow two books of their choice from the selection provided. Parents can choose one, several, or all of the dates offered to accommodate their individual schedules. The teachers running this program at Marbletown are Carol LaGoy and Heidi Racioppo. This is a free program. Drop off is at noon and pick-up is at 2 p.m. in the lobby. It is critical that you pick up your child promptly by 2 p.m. The dates for the program are as follows:  
Tuesday, July 12th (Note: If your child attends STEAM Camp in the morning and plans to attend the Summer Reading Program in the afternoon on the 12th, please make sure to let our office know, and make sure to pack a lunch for your child)  
Thursday, July 14th (Note: If your child attends STEAM Camp in the morning and plans to attend the Summer Reading Program in the afternoon on the 14th, please make sure to let our office know, and make sure to pack a lunch for your child)  
Monday, July 18th – Thursday July 21st

In additional the following are local programs designed to encourage students to read during the summer.  
Summer Reading and Exercise Challenge – Assemblymember Kevin A. Cahill will award students who read for at least 15 minutes and exercise for at least 30 minutes a day for 40 days during the months of July & August. All you need to do is mark the 40 days on the calendar and send it to Assemblymember Cahill’s Office and you will receive a New York State Excellence in Reading & Exercise certificate. Copies of the Summer Reading and Exercise Challenge and the corresponding calendars are available in the Marbletown Main Office.  
Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Triathlon: This one is easy and best of all you can earn a FREE BOOK from Barnes & Noble.  Reading is like a sport in at least one way: developing the skill to do it well takes practice and commitment. To help stay in reading shape all summer long, the Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Triathlon has been designed with activities and challenges that you’ll find fun no matter what kind of books you like to read. To earn a FREE BOOK from Barnes & Noble, all you need to do is follow these three easy steps: 
1. Answer 3 of the 4 questions in the Summer Reading Triathlon Journal (These are easy questions.  See http://dispatch.barnesandnoble.com/content/dam/ccr/pdf/2016/summer-reading/BN_SummerReading_Journal.pdf?x=y). You can also get a copy of this journal at the Marbletown Main Office. 
2. Bring your completed questions to Barnes and Noble before September 6, 2016. 
3. Choose a FREE BOOK from the list of books features on the journal. 

Thank you!  Keep reading and have a great summer!
