2023 Summer Reading

Governor’s Reading Challenge 2023 – Find Your Voice

GES Students entering PreK – Grade 4 next year are invited to participate in this program during the summer. Write down the title of any books* you read in the Reading Journal.  You do NOT have to fill all the lines. This is for fun. It doesn’t matter if you read 2 books or 32 books! The important thing is to fill out the information on the back of the journal with your first and last name and the name of your 2023-2024 (next year's) teacher.

*If you don’t have a printed journal, it is OK to use a sheet of paper as long as you include the information on the back. (Name, grade, teacher, etc)

Read whatever you enjoy! Current PreK-4th grade students will be receiving a paperback book to kick-off their summer reading! Slater Library in Jewett City has many resources and fun programs as well.


*If you participate in any of the public library programs or someone reads a book to you, those count. So do audiobooks, magazine articles, online articles, and ebooks.

Return the journals during the first two weeks back to school in the fall of 2023 (by Monday, September 11). Participants will receive a certificate of participation and be entered into a drawing to win one of two Kindle Fire Tablets. HAVE FUN!

If you have any questions, please email Ms. Judy Beahan at with "GES Parent" in the subject line, and visit the GES Library Media Center on Facebook.
