Rep. Bos Offers Free Summer Reading Program for PreK-5th Graders

State Representative Chris Bos (R-Lake Zurich) is offering a program to keep students sharp over summer vacation. His Summer Reading Program gives children in PreK through 5th grade the opportunity to keep their minds active during summer vacation while also providing the chance to have some fun for participating.

“Studies show that regular reading at a young age helps our kids perform better in school now and in the future,” said Bos. “To encourage our young readers, students who complete my summer reading program will receive official recognition from the Illinois House of Representatives and an invite to an ice cream social at the end of summer. I’m looking forward to a great ice cream social to recognize all our readers!”

To participate in Rep. Bos’ Summer Reading Program, children must read eight books (books over 150 pages count for two) between the time school ends and the program deadline of August 1. Children who achieve this goal will be invited to join their fellow students and Rep. Bos for an ice cream social at the end of summer. Participants will also receive an official Certificate of Recognition commending their reading efforts this summer. This program can also be completed in conjunction with any other reading program already offered at a child’s school or through the public library in their community.

Participation brochures are available at Rep. Bos’ office in Lake Zurich or can be downloaded Here. Completed brochures can be submitted online or returned to the office by August 1.
