Reading is fun all summer long!
This summer, every student is encouraged to enjoy reading with their families. 30 minutes per day. Every day. You can read any title you choose and read as often as you like.
Join us and celebrate reading at the Red Wings!  
RocRead at Red Wings | August 28th 
We'd love to see every student and their family at this year's RocRead at the Red Wings on August 28th at Frontier Field. The game time is at 7:05 p.m. but join us early for free books at 5:30 p.m. Each student who reads a book and turns in a completed Summer reading packet will receive two free tickets to the game.
Summer Reading is required for Grades PreK-12 
The 2015 Summer Reading Initiative for grades PreK-12 provides Rochester City School students with a list of engaging book titles to read over the summer months. Each student is required to read at least one book in order to complete their grade-appropriate assignments. All assignments are due the first day of school, September 2nd or can be turned in for early for tickets to the RocRead at the Red Wings game.
