CHAUTAUQUA COUNTY – Assemblyman Andy Goodell announced that his office and New York State Libraries are sponsoring a summer reading challenge to encourage students to read throughout the summer months.
Goodell said reading daily can open children’s minds to new adventures, goals and interests.
The summer reading challenge requires children to read on their own or with someone else for at 40 days throughout summer break. Forms are available at local schools and Goodell’s district office located in the Fenton Building on 2nd Street in Jamestown.
Parents must mark the enclosed calendar for each day in July and August that their child reads with them, someone else, or, on their own.
Once at least 40 days has been marked off, return the completed form to Assemblyman Goodell’s Office and your child will receive a New York State Excellence in reading certificate.
This year’s theme is ‘A Universe of Stories’.
