  • Book Your Summer

    Book Your Summer is a new K-12 program designed to build a community of readers in FCPS.  Students in grades 1-12 in the 2016-17 school year are challenged to read books of their choice for fun, and keep track of their progress via a READ! Card. Students can choose the path they want to follow on the READ! Card, then complete the activities and record the titles of the books they read.  Entries can be submitted online after Monday, June 27.  Participants at each school will qualify for a chance to win school prizes, including $50 in books of their choice or a laptop computer.
