SUMMER READING CHALLENGE FOR 1st - 6th GRADE
The Covenant Preparatory School is pleased to announce the return of the Summer Reading Challenge. As this program grows and more and more students participate, it is our continued desire to help reading become an integral part of your child's daily activity during the summer months. We hope that you will encourage your child to accept the challenge as he or she continues to grow and develop into a Covenant Knight reader who adheres to the wisdome of Paul who wrote: Finally brother and sister, whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable and praiseworthy, think of these things (Philippians 4:8).
The format is the same as in years past with students reading books and providing a brief written summary of the book they read. Students will select books from a grade appropriate list of titles that are engaging, exciting and reflective of our Classical Christian philosophy. Please keep in mind that the Summer Challenge is designed to help students develop and strengthen their independent reading skills. All students participating in this Summer Challenge will be recognized at a special awards program when we return to school this fall. Those students reaching a designated goal will receive a bronze, silver, or gold medal. In addition, the top readers from each class will be recognized for their achievements at a special celebration dinner in September.
All grade level reading lists, reading logs and participation forms can be located on this page. In addition, a supplementary Staff Recommendation list is included for students after they reach the silver level.
For all incoming 1st through 4th grade students, this program is optional. However, we strongly encourage all students to participate in order to help maintain their reading progress throughout the summer.
All incoming 5th and 6th grade students will have one required novel to read over the summer which can also be used to meet the Reading Challenge requirements. Additional participation is optional.
