Washington – Today Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-05) announced his 2018 Summer Reading Challenge for students through eighth grade in California’s Fifth Congressional District.
“Reading helps students explore new topics, expand their interests, and ensure they are developing academically. That’s why I am thrilled to announce my 2018 Summer Reading Challenge,” said Thompson. “Students will be challenged to read throughout the summer and recognized for their dedication. I encourage all young people throughout our district to participate!”
Reading lists are developed through a partnership with the Association for Library Service to Children and the Library of Congress and broken down by grade so all recommendations are age appropriate. That list can be found by clicking here. Thompson will recognize all students who participate at an event at the end of the summer. Students, parents, and teachers can sign up by clicking here.
