OBJECTIVE:  To provide the support and momentum for reading and learning that helps bridge the gap between school years. To motivate McClernand students to engage in the District 186 Read 5 summer reading program. To provide community organizations an opportunity to work together around student learning.


MISSION:  We will invite all McClernand students to attend, participate and log their reading minutes.  We will remind and encourage all students to maintain and complete their reading logs either on the computer or on paper. SIU will purchase and donate a new book as well as provide a fun learning activity each week. We will host two summer  “Read 5” parties (June 29th and July 27th) and a back to school “Read 5” celebration party (August 31st) to celebrate and calculate our “minutes the month”.


MEETING DATES:  We will meet Thursday at 2:30pm at the Northside Children’s Community Library (NCCL) at 1030 n 7th St in the basement of 3rd Presbyterian Church weekly for 9 weeks.
