Thank You to Our Real Life Superheroes: POLICE OFFICERS!

Thank You to Our Real Life Superheroes: POLICE OFFICERS!

In honor of National Police Week, we are celebrating our real life superheroes protecting us each and every day–POLICE OFFICERS! Read more below on how to be an every day superhero- like our police offcers– and start your summer off right!

Did You Know It’s National Police Week?

According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, President Kennedy proclaimed the calendar week of May 15th as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.

Thank you to these men and women who have dedicated their lives to being every day superheroes!

Real Life Superheroes: TEACHERS!

This week we are celebrating one of our favorite superheroes…TEACHERS!

We all know how important it is to encourage children to read during the summer. Read more below and learn from our every day superheroes– teachers– and how to be a Superhero this summer too! 

Crush the Summer Slide!

Studies show that summer reading is critical to help students stay sharp for the upcoming school year.

Students who do not read during the summer can quickly fall behind, losing between one and three months of learning. Worse, the “Summer Slide” is cumulative, meaning learning losses build up each year.

It’s time to stop the summer slide. Be a reading superhero and read every day BUT don’t forget to log your time.

If you’re the parent of or are a Tennessee student in grades 5-12 and haven’t registered yet to be a Superhero with Tristar Reads, be sure to register online for the chance to win a $1,000 scholarship!
