The regular 180-day school year for K-12 students in Miami-Dade County ends this week. Florida's First Lady Ann Scott and the Florida Department of Education's Just Read, Florida! office encourage students to participate in the 2012 Summer Literacy Adventure.
Schools, students and parents can prepare for the summer break by participating in this challenge to have students read. The 2012 Summer Literacy Adventure is geared to help children stay on target, motivated and excited about reading and literacy. Don’t allow your child to lose learning gains made this school year. During summer vacation, it is important for students to spend time reading and writing on a regular basis whether the student is a beginning reader or a proficient reader.
The 2012 Summer Literacy Adventure invites you to have your students read as many books as possible. Each student should complete his or her pledge form on the Just Read, Florida! website at www.justreadflorida.com. Following the summer break, the Department will recognize the top ten schools with the highest percentage of participation.
