Seton Summer Reading Club…Enjoy the Sheer Delight


This Summer Reading article has a link to projects to make Summer Reading fun. We would love to see photos of your children having fun with their reading.

Seton’s Summer Reading Club hopes to inspire your children to spend time this summer getting acquainted with some of literature’s favorite characters.

Unlike many schools, Seton does not assign summer reading but rather encourages parents and students to read for the sheer delight in reading. We want your children to encounter villains and heroes, to fight orcs and dragons, and to walk alongside soldiers and saints.

We want to send them off to travel the world on a plane, ship, or train, to solve mysteries, and to climb mountains, all from the comfort of their homes.

Seton provides a book list, but with their parent’s direction, children are free to choose any book they like.

Visit Seton’s Summer Reading Club webpage to print your reading checklist and look at the booklists.

After each book, have your child either write a summary or give an oral report to mom or dad.

When they have read six books, send the checklist to Seton to receive your certificate. We would love to see photos of your children with their certificate, and there is a place on the website to submit those photos.

There are also suggestions for small projects to do in conjunction with their reading if that is something that is of interest. For example, create a model of a scene from a book from Lego, or clay, or anything else.

We hope that you enjoy helping your child choose a few books to spend the summer with and that the whole family gets involved in a summer of stories!
