Dear Atlantic Highlands Families,

The summer reading program is virtual this year!  This year’s theme is Imagine Your Story with a focus on fairytales and folktales.  Your student can log reading time with the Monmouth County Library and earn a prize at the end of the program.  The program runs from June 15, 2020 to August 15, 2020.  Please follow the instructions on the next page to login and start recording your reading times.  There are instructional videos along with written instructions to help you.  I hope you participate in this wonderful program.  The students have really enjoyed it in the past.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Happy reading,

Mrs. Higgins
