Parents, please encourage your students to continue to read even though they are no longer in the Reading Counts! program from their elementary and middle school days. Students need to keep their minds and their skills sharp. Even though they are not in a reading program, they should continue to raise their reading level since many of them will be attending colleges in the near future.
REMEMBER! Students should read material in which they are interested. It is very hard to keep reading something in which they have no interest or inclination to read.
