Summer Reading


"Reading should not be presented to children as a chore or duty. It should be offered to them as a precious gift."

— Kate DiCamillo

In Glastonbury, one of our goals for students is to develop the habit of lifelong reading. “Summer Reading” is designed with that purpose in mind. 

Please scroll below for directions and explanations to help you to participate in Glastonbury’s Summer Reading Program. Information is organized by the grade that students will be entering in the fall of 2017.

Please note: This year we have significantly revised the summer reading program for secondary students to help them celebrate summer reading for pleasure and relaxation. Please be sure to read the parent letter explaining the new program. Optional discussion questions will be posted later in June.
