State Representative Ryan Spain (R-73rd District) is sending his congratulations to the more than 200 K-4th grade students who completed the challenge of his 7th annual Summer Reading Club Program. The program challenged students to read eight books during summer vacation to join the club and receive special recognition.
“As a parent, I know firsthand how important it is to encourage our kids to keep their minds active during summer break, and research shows how beneficial reading is to their future development,” said Spain. “Congratulations to all the young readers across the 73rd District who took on my reading challenge this summer! Your commitment to reading sets you up for future success, and I hope you enjoyed it as well.”
This summer, 223 students completed Rep. Spain’s Summer Reading Club Program. For achieving the goal of reading eight books by the July 31 deadline, each student received a letter of congratulations, a certificate of recognition, and a $10 gift card for a treat (not paid for at taxpayer expense) from Rep. Spain.
Each summer, Rep. Spain opens his Summer Reading Club through area schools and libraries, and the program can be completed in conjunction with any reading program already offered through a child’s school or local library.
