Dear Parents and Caregivers,

As you get ready for a relaxing summer we would like to remind you to keep reading! When students continue to read during the summer they can avoid the "Summer Slide" where they may lose some of the knowledge gained during the school year. 

This year, the Governor's Summer Reading Challenge theme is "Tails and Tales".  To help students prioritize reading in their summer plans, we will have a Summer Reading Celebration in the fall. This summer we're asking that students-

• Read at least 10 picture books (or 10 chapters if reading chapter books)

• List titles on the attached reading log OR on the online reading tracker -

• Turn in the reading log by Friday, September 17 with the total number of books read during the summer. The log can also be emailed to

We also would like to encourage you to check out the fun and exciting programs that Groton's public libraries (Groton Public Library, Mystic & Noank Library, and Bill Memorial Library) and the Subase NLON Library are putting on! Each of these libraries also offer access to their own digital services like ebooks, audiobooks, and Tumblebooks. Digital library cards are available too! More information is available on their websites.

All Groton students have access to ebooks through our reading app Sora. You can download the app or visit and log in with your Groton Google account to start checking out books! As a reminder, if you have a public library card you can link it to your Groton Sora to access the public library's digital collections too.

Keep reading and enjoy your summer!
