    How to Participate

    The RCPS Summer Reading is open to all students in grades pre-K through 12, including students new to RCPS! 

    To complete the program, students must read — or be read to — for at least 600 minutes and submit their completed reading log. All reading logs must be signed by a parent/guardian. All pages of the reading log that you've filled out must be submitted. Your name and your school name must be included on your reading log.

    You may download the reading log above, or ask your school for a copy. Once you've completed the reading log, submit it to your school or email it to info@rcps.info. Please make sure to include your name and school. Schools should send completed reading logs to the Communications & Marketing Department.

    Reading logs MUST be submitted by Monday, August 19, 2024. 

    Why Should I Read?

    Studies show students become better, stronger readers if they continue to read during the summer. It is fun and they are more likely to become lifelong readers.

    But that's not all!

    Every student who completes the Summer Reading Program and submits a completed reading log will receive a free book and gift card! Students will also be entered into a drawing to win special prizes. 

    This webpage will be updated over the summer with a list of times and dates available to pick up your summer reading prizes. Prizes must be picked up at the Booker T. Washington Central Administration Building at 40 Douglass Ave. NW.

    Reading just 20 minutes a day will help you reach your goal!
