Find Your Voice and Inspire Others to Find Theirs
When you find your voice, you have found something that you are good at. You focus on your strengths. You then use the things you do well to help inspire others. Think about people in your family, community, or world who have made a difference in your life and have inspired you in some way. Create a list of the inspirational people in your life. Write down some of the things that inspire you about them. Now you practice finding your voice!

Summer Reading Logs
#readwithme this summer!
We so appreciate you encouraging your child to read this summer! Your support and assistance is crucial as they develop this skill that they will use every day, in every subject for the rest of their lives. As budding readers, it is important for us to follow their lead in book selection, allowing them to explore a variety of books. More than anything else, we want to create a love of books and literature and avoid making reading seem like a chore.
Through books, you and your child can visit distant lands, learn new vocabulary, and experience new ideas, all while enjoying time spent together. That is the beauty of a great book! With younger children, read the book with them, asking questions about the illustrations and the story, checking for comprehension, building vocabulary and “collecting experiences.” For older, more independent readers, ask them to tell you about the story. Of course, our children never grow too old for a great read aloud, so don’t shy away from a family read aloud, even for older readers. You’ll be amazed by how much they love it (and you will too)!
Fun Ways to Read!
On the reverse side of this letter is your child’s summer reading log. Please encourage and assist your child with their reading. The Kershaw County Library also has a summer reading program for students. Pre-K through 5th graders only need to read six books to participate in the public library program. If your child reads at least 10 books and returns the completed and signed attached reading log, he or she will be invited to a reading celebration at the beginning of next year.
All reading logs are due to the library by September 3rd. Students who return their logs will be invited to a Jackson School Read-In on September 13th.
Thank you for supporting your child’s reading,
