Danbury Public Schools 10 Book Challenge for Summer 2019
Instead of a list of books for summer reading, Danbury Public Schools have issued a “10 Book Challenge” to students entering 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. The challenge provides students with more freedom to choose books that spark their interests.
When you finish a book, be sure to record its title and author on the Challenge Record Sheet.
