Students are encouraged to read 30 minutes each day at home, to supplement and strengthen the reading they’re doing in the classroom. They can read any materials that interest them, including our free district ebooks, as long as they’re reading!
- Reading is a powerful way to build vocabulary and increase overall literacy
- Building a love of reading will support other academic areas and better prepare children for increased workloads in college
- Community members can support GCS students by participating in community reader days, becoming a reading buddy and/or donating books or funds to purchase books
“Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.” Joseph Addison
