Summer Reading


Collinswood Summer Reading 2019

Everything You Need To Know


Welcome to our 2019 Summer Reading program!  You may have noticed that we have renamed our program from SOL to “Collinswood Summer Reading”.  All of the things you loved about SOL remain with a couple great additions!  


Awesome Rewards! Like last year, there are leveled prizes based on the number of hours read:

  • 20 hours - Attend the reading celebration with music and a deejay!
  • 40 hours - Receive a Summer Reading t-shirt you can wear on Fridays
  • 60 hours - No Uniform Day
  • 80 hours - No Homework pass
  • 100 hours - Upgrade to a tie-dyed Summer Reading shirt!

AND students have the opportunity to win other prizes.  They will receive one raffle ticket for every 10 hours they read, and we will raffle off prizes at the celebration including a new bike, lunch in principal’s office, a Chromebook, an Amazon Kindle, a Fitbit and more!


NEW: We’re updating and going green! This year we have a great website (also an app!) called Reading Rewards and students will be able to track their reading online.  It’s easy! Follow these instructions to register online:

  • Go to URL: or downloading the Reading Rewards app.
  • Click on the ‘Sign Up!’ button and follow the instructions. Use your parent email address but enter your child’s name and birth year and birth month. (It will work even though you will get a warning about child’s age.)
  • Click on ‘Reading Circle › My Groups’ and type your child’s group name in the search box (group names are below – note that there is NO hyphen or space at the end).
  • Click on the group name for your child’s rising grade and enter the security code from the list below.

Log your reading time: To start logging reading time, your child can click on ‘Reading – My Reading Log.’ Remember, your child can also listen to audiobooks or have someone else read aloud to them and that counts as reading time! (Note: students receive equal credit for reading in Spanish and reading in English this year.)

Get the app: Make sure you download the app to your child’s device so they can log their own reading time!


We hope you and your child are excited to read this summer! Studies have shown that students who read over the summer experience less summer brain drain and perform better academically all year long.  Questions? Contact Stacy Holliday at or 704-614-4482.
