Thank You to Our Real Life Superheroes: Teachers!
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!

You Can Be a Superhero Too!

Across the Volunteer State, participating students will read for at least 20 minutes a day during the summer break. The program runs from May 1, 2019 through September 7, 2019 and is open to all Tennessee students in kindergarten through 12th grade.

Three $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to the students –one elementary school student (K – 5th grade), one middle school student (6th – 8th grade), and one high school student (9th – 12th grade)– who read and log the most hours over the course of the summer.
