Winger Concludes Fourth Annual Summer Reading Program


State Representative Christine Winger recently celebrated with students who participated in her 2018 Summer Reading Program.

The program invited students in grades K-5 to read 10 books over the summer, and with the completion of their reading lists, they were invited to celebrate with their State Representative.

This is the fourth annual summer reading program that Rep. Winger has hosted. Providing this program every summer has been important for the Representative, to provide a fun way for students to continue learning during the months away from school. In fact, research has shown that children who read four or more books over the summer fare better on reading comprehension tests in the fall than their peers who read one or no books over the summer.

The Representative always loves to hear each student’s favorite books, and encourages the summer readers to keep up the good work throughout the school year.

“In the reading program, the kids get to choose the books they want to read—which helps motivate them to want to read,” said Winger. “Making this program fun and ending the summer with a celebration, makes students eager to read more and be a part of this.”

At the party, the summer readers received Certificates of Recognition from the House of Representatives and enjoyed frozen custard provided by Culvers.

Rep. Winger looks forward to hosting another successful program next year!
