Summer Reading Contest

Show us your love of reading over the summer and win! Send us a photo of your summer reading using the hashtag #ireadwithDLC and win your choice of a DLC water bottle or t-shirt. The contest is open to all DLC students from now until July 25th.

Even though tomorrow is the last official day of school, the DLC wants you to keep reading over the summer. Students can experience significant learning loss when they don’t participate in educational activities during the summer months. When returning to school in the fall, students who lose reading skills over the summer do not typically catch up to their peers in the fall because they spend the first few weeks trying to catch up.

Reading just 4-5 books during the summer can prevent this gap.

If you’re not sure where to start, check in with your librarian. Most local libraries run summer reading programs, so head to your library today and send us your summer reading photo!
