Summer Learning Challenge and Battle of the Books

Posted June 14th, 2015 by Ms. Durchslag

We hope that all of our Campanelli families have a great summer vacation. Information about our annual Summer Learning Challenge was sent home last Friday. To assist with helping your child to continue to read over the summer, we wanted to provide a couple of resources for you.

  • The Schaumburg Library Bookmobile will be visiting Campanelli on the following dates from 10:00-10:45 a.m.:
    • Wednesday, June 17, 2015
    • Wednesday, July 1, 2015
    • Wednesday, July 15, 2015
  • If you misplaced the Summer Learning Challenge Calendar, you can access it here:  2015 calendar
  • Listed below is the Tentative 2015-16 list for Battle of the Books. Even if your child is not interested in joining Battle of the Books Club next year, we wanted to share this with you because the list provides books that are quality literature for each grade level. It is possible that some of the titles could change in the fall, which will provide more reading opportunities for our students!

We hope you have an enjoyable summer full of fun, relaxation, and reading!
