Demmitt Elementary students and parents kicked off 2017 Kids Read Now on May 9. Kids Read Now is a summer reading program for K-3rd graders designed to keep kids reading during the summer vacation. Each student gets to select nine books off a book wish list and on family night, the students receive their first three books.
Once a student finishes a book, parents should discuss reading comprehension questions with the student. After parents report that their child finished the book, a new book from the child's list will be mailed to their home. If student's read all nine of their books, they will receive a prize and certificate of recognition in the fall.
