Summer reading will keep your child’s learning moving forward and there’s no better time for them to develop a lifelong habit of finding pleasure in books.
To support our students with their summer reading goals, the ASIJ Elementary Library allows returning students to check out books during summer vacation. If your child is interested in participating in summer checkout, please complete the summer checkout permission form below.
All books are due on student orientation day in August.
This year homerooms will have a specified time for students to check out their summer reading books. 15 books/child will be the limit this year. If a parent is volunteering on campus during the last week of school (such as, for Field Day), the parent may check out an additional 5 books on the family account while on campus.

The only rule is to make edible art that has something to do with a favorite book! Last year students made their edible art from cakes, cookies, pancakes, ice cream, fruit, whipped cream, marshmallows, pretzels, vegetables and there were even a few “book bentos”. You can work alone, with your siblings or friends.
