A Message to Parents of Incoming Kindergartners!

Welcome Kindergarten families! To prepare for our school adventure we encourage our kindergarteners to spend 20 - 30 minutes a day enjoying stories read aloud and talking about them. We hope you will regard this list as a suggestion and explore the many reading resources available in town. Modelling a love of books fosters the love of reading in your child.

The Scranton Library is an invaluable resource to help you connect your child with books, audiobooks, magazines and opportunities to spend time with other readers.

Please keep track of your child's reading by filling out a Summer Reading Recording Sheet of all titles that you've read together and submit it to your child's Kindergarten teacher in September.

Happy Reading!
