Summer Reading
Don’t do the summer slide.
Read and Achieve!


Once again, it is time for us to prepare for the summer reading. Annie Fisher STEM is participating in the Governor’s Summer Reading Challenge. We are asking that all of our students track their summer reading. They have received a specific reading challenge log, and many classes have already begun to record their books. Please see the following links to many websites that you may use to access summer reading resources.
