To provide a forum for Big Horn's community of readers
that promotes a shared culture of reading for pleasure and knowledgewhile sustaining reading achievement and expanding reading interests.



How to Participate:
1. Read a minimum of three books over the summer.
POSSIBLE PRIZES:
3 books - dilly bar party
5 books - dilly bar party + watch a movie during school - in the auditorium
10 books - dilly bar party + watch a movie during school + another prize (to be determined - but it will be cool!)

2. Update your Wiki page with your reading goal, what you've read, and what you plan on reading. Keep track of the books you have read on the log (see link). If you forget to do this, during the first week of school, pick up a summer reading form and fill it out. You'll need the titles of the three (or more) books that you read, the authors' names, your signature, and a parent's signature. Turn in to reading teacher or Ms. Martin (librarian).
