Central Intermediate Summer Reading 2024

Here at CIS we are fostering a love of reading.  All incoming 3rd-5th grade students at Central Intermediate School will complete two incentive based summer reading books. They may choose any of the books from the list below.  They will complete a project from the “Choice Board” for each book.  The projects must be completed by August 23, 2024.  We will have a school wide Summer Reading Celebration to reward students who completed their summer reading projects. 

The books marked with the following banner are from the Louisiana Young Readers’ Choice nominees list.  Students who read at least FIVE of these titles by mid February will be allowed to join a team for Battle of the Books.   

Adventure Begins in the Library so drop by, grab a punch card, read books, and reap all the rewards. The CIS library will be open starting June 4-July 25th on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9-1 to check out books and take AR tests.  Students will receive a punch card when they take their first AR test and can earn a free smoothie from Tropical Smoothie, a free book, Canes, and a gift certificate from Cavalier House Books.  All AR tests will count towards the first 9 weeks AR grade as well as the 40 Book Challenge, Million Word Challenge, and Battle of the Books Challenge.  

Click here for summaries  of all the books and links to the EBRP Library.

For delivery to your student's classroom, order by April 26th and select "Free Book Fair Shipping" at checkout. 20% of all purchases through this page will be donated to the CIS library!
