From the Desk of Denise Juneau
Dear Montana School Principals:
I am getting ready for the third year of The Summer 6 Reading Challenge. I hope your school will take part in this important initiative. When students sign up for the challenge to read at least six books over the course of the summer, they will be eligible to win prizes. Last year 2,000 Montana students took the challenge.
The OPI has a page on its website devoted to the "Summer 6 Reading Challenge." Click here for more information: http://opi.mt.gov/read6books. The site has materials you can download and print for parents and students.
I'm asking your school to do three important things to promote the Summer 6 Reading Challenge:
  1. Encourage students to sign-up before the end of the school year.  Teachers can help students sign up online or send in a registration form. 
  2. Print and distribute the Summer 6 Reading Challenge materials for parents and students with your school's end-of-year materials.
  3. Post information about the Summer 6 Reading Challenge on your website and link to our webpage. http://opi.mt.gov/read6books
 If you have questions or comments, please e-mail me at opisupt@mt.gov  or call Colet Bartow, School Library Specialist, at 406-444-3583. Thank you for everything you do for Montana students.

Sincerely,
