Summer Reading Challenge Logo

May 2024

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Old Kings Elementary encourages all students to read at least 15 minutes a day this summer for 5 days each week.  Help us reach our goal of 405 minutes for June through July.  We know they can do it!

Sign up by June 6th to participate!

We will be using an online reading log called Beanstack. It is a free app in the app store.  You will be emailed your child’s log-in information when you sign up. You can also access Beanstack through your student’s Classlink account.

If you would prefer to track your child's reading progress on paper, a paper reading log is available here or at the front office of Old Kings Elementary. 

Besides achieving a digital badge each time they read 45 minutes, each participating school will be rewarding students with a small prize at the beginning of the new school year.

Please contact Kim Weeks at weeksk@flaglerschools.com with any questions.

 

Sincerely, 

 

Kim Weeks

Our mission is to inspire a passion for knowledge, an appreciation for knowledge, and a love of reading. We will create a safe, nurturing environment in which students will acquire the literacy skills necessary for success in the 21st century. 

Placing a Book on Hold

Students may place a 'hold' on a maximum of two library books. Once the book is available, we will call to let you know it is ready for pick up at the front office.​​​​​​

Sunshine State Young Reader's Award Program

The Sunshine State Young Reader's Award Program (SSYRA) is a statewide reading program for students in grades 3–5. The SSYRA Junior Program is a set of 15 books for students in grades K–2.

The purpose of the SSYRA Program is to encourage students to read independently for personal satisfaction based on interest rather than just reading level. Students are encouraged to read books that are above, on, and below their tested reading level in order to improve their reading fluency and have a greater exposure to literature. 

At Old Kings Elementary, we celebrate readers that read books from the SSYRA list. In grades 3–5, if a student reads five or more books from their list and passes a Reading Counts test, they will receive a pizza party. If a student reads all 15 books and passes the Reading Counts test, they will receive a special lunch with the Media Specialist, Media Aide, and an administrator.
