Winger invites students on a summer safari, sort of
Rep. Christine Winger (R-Wood Dale) wants this summer to be a special one for students in her district, so she's asking them to come along on her third-annual "Summer Reading Safari."
Students in kindergarten through fifth grade can take part by reading eight books over the summer, then celebrate with Winger in the fall.
“Reading during the summer months is important so students can continue learning and thinking creatively,” Winger said in a statement. “This program is a fun opportunity to keep students engaged and on track, and something that I hope they look forward to participating in every summer.”
Students can choose their own books and send Winger a list of what they're reading.
The summer reading program ends on August 21, when forms are due in Winger’s office.
