Spring ISD's Summer Reading Program Invites PK-8 Students to Discover 'Animals Around the World!'
Spring ISD elementary and middle school students are invited to embark over the summer on a worldwide voyage of adventure and discovery during Spring ISD’s Journey Into Reading summer reading program. This year’s theme is “Animals Around the World,” and students can set sail on the adventure right from the comfort of their home or local library.
The Journey Into Reading program launches on June 5 and continues through July 30. Students in prekindergarten through eighth grade will use the myON digital library platform that offers students access to thousands of grade-level-appropriate titles in both English and Spanish, including a wide variety of titles that will be specially featured during this summer’s program, like “The World’s Weirdest Animals,” “Giant Pandas Are Awesome!” and “Who Grows Up in the Rain Forest?”
Accessible on district-issued tablets and computers as well as personal devices, the myON app tracks the number of minutes students spend reading as well as the total number of books students read during the program. Prizes are planned for top student participants.

“There's Wildlife at Barbara Bush,” a free special event at the library on Friday, June 9, will feature an animal ambassador from the Texas Wildlife Rehabilitation Coalition’s Wildlife Center, and students will have the opportunity to learn about conservation and the local urban environment. On Tuesday, June 20, the library’s special “Wild Zoofari” event will feature live animals such asâ€¯lemurs, kangaroos, and maybe even a skunk!
