Governor's Summer Reading Challenge

The Governor's Summer Reading

Summer 2017

Stay tuned till next Summer 2017 to learn what the new CT Governor Summer Reading Challenge theme will be...


Each year students at Deep River Elementary School participate in the CT Governor Reading Challenge. This program sponsored the Connecticut State Department of Education and the Governor's office is meant to encourage and support students' engagement in reading over the summer months. Students at DRES that participate in the Summer Reading Challenge can turn their materials into Mrs. Schaedler in the Fall when they return to school and can earn an additional recess with other students who have participated in the Challenge. Furthermore, supporting students in participating in this challenge will help prepare students in their upcoming school year, but will also ensure that they do not regress in terms of their reading abilities over the summer. Finally, it is meant to be fun, as all reading should be!
