Summer Reading for Grades K-12
The 2016 Summer Reading Initiative for grades K-12 provides Rochester City School students with a list of engaging book titles to read over the summer months. Each student is encouraged to visit their local library, using their grade appropriate list as a guide, and read all summer long. All grade levels can win some great prizes this summer for participating online or at their local library.
