The Palm Crest Elementary PTA is proud to announce the 8th annual iRead Summer Reading program. The 2019 iRead summer reading program will begin on Thursday, June 6, 2019, the first day of summer vacation, and end on Wednesday, August 14, 2019, the day before the new school year starts. All students who are continuing at PCR next school year are eligible to participate. Here’s how it works:ny PCR student entering grades 1st through 6th grade in August 2019 is eligible to participate.
Read and keep track of your minutes. iRead participation is measured by the time spent reading, not how many pages you read! You can read anything — books, magazines, websites, electronic readers like Kindles. Just keep track of your minutes on the downloadable 2019 Paper Reading Log.
If you will be entering 1st or 2nd grade in August, you may include minutes read reading with your parents.
At the end of the program, total your minutes and have your parent sign to verify the minutes read. Turn in your reading log to your homeroom teachers when school starts. Make sure you put your name at the top of all logs!
