Coonley offers a Summer Reading Challenge for the summer. Each student receives our "Coonley Summer Reading Challenge" chart at the end of the school year. If you need another form, simply go to this link and the forms are at the bottom of the page (http://coonleylibrary.weebly.com/summer-reading-information.html) We hope this encourages students to set a goal and read more over the summer!
Looking for some recommended books? Ms. Wiltse has put together lists of recommended reading. Check out her suggestions here: http://coonleylibrary.weebly.com/reading-lists.html
Happy Reading and almost Happy Summer!
