School is ending for area students, and summer break is kicking into full swing. One area lawmaker wants children to read throughout the summer while still enjoying their break. This is the third year that 95th District Representative Avery Bourne has challenged her district’s elementary school students to dive into a good book over summer break, and she will be hosting ice cream parties at the end of the summer for those that participate in the challenge.
Bourne says reading has a huge impact on a child’s future.
Bourne says she’s excited to continue helping educate her district’s youth throughout the hot summer months.
Bourne says reading logs have gone out to area schools to be passed out to students. If your child did not receive a log, you can visit Bourne’s office in Litchfield to receive a copy or there is a downloadable form on her website. You can visit her website by clicking here.
