Here's how it works: once a student has returned ALL his/her books to the library a permission slip is sent home for summer loans. A signed permission slip is a ticket to 5 summer loans for Kindergarten students and 10 summer loans for 1st-6th grade students. This year, summer loans will be sent home in an FES READS bag; this bag is barcoded and will be returned with the books during the first week of the 2015-2016 school year.
Is your student the kind of kid who wants specific motivators to read? I've developed a FES READS calendar to get kids moving. Thank you Mrs. Koch for the idea!
