Free Books For All Students through Title I Summer Mailbox Books –
This year, through the Title I Summer Mailbox Books Program, all students (preK-5th grade) can choose 10 free books that will be mailed home over the summer to read and keep. Your child may be coming home from school with questions and ideas for conversation with you about what types of books, stories, or topics you like and why. Talking about yourself as a reader can support your child in thinking about the books they might want to choose! Students will select the books they are interested in at school between April 10-26. If you prefer to select books together with your child as a family activity, you are invited to do so March 27-April 9. Information about how to do that can be found on this APS website for the Summer Mailbox Books program, or by scanning the QR code below.
