Summer Reading 2023
Information PageSummer Reading Is a Vital Tool for Students to Combat the Notorious "Summer Slide" and Maintain Their Academic Progress. Engaging in Reading During the Summer Months Not Only Enhances Language Skills but Also Fosters a Lifelong Love for Learning.

Reading During the Summer Allows Individuals to Stay Mentally Active, Preventing the Loss of Valuable Knowledge and Skills Gained Throughout the School Year. Furthermore, It Exposes Them to Diverse Perspectives and Cultures, Fostering Empathy and Broadening Their Horizons. The Importance of Summer Reading Lies Not Only in Preserving Academic Achievements but Also in Cultivating a Passion for Lifelong Learning, Unlocking Doors to New Ideas and Opportunities.To prevent the "summer slide," students who attend the Ewing Township Public Schools are challenged to read, write, and think each summer.
