Superintendent's Summer Reading

OCPS Summer Reads 2020

Imagine Your Story

"Imagine Your Story" is the theme of Orange County Public Schools' motivational summer reading challenge. The purpose of the challenge is to motivate children to read for pleasure and to ensure that students maintain their reading skills over summer vacation. On this page you can find OCPS provided links to reading lists, interactive literacy websites, e-books, parent resources, and literacy events in our community. Students may also access the OCPS's Summer Reading Challenge via LaunchPad. This challenge encourages students to read and log their minutes electronically using the Beanstack application. For more information, watch this Beanstack video.

As your family reads this summer, OCPS encourages you to share the literacy message via Twitter. Using the hashtag, #OCPSreads, we hope our students (over 13 years of age) and parents will share what you are reading, where you are reading and how much you are reading. Utilize the hashtag when posting pictures of books and fun places that students read over the summer, too.
