Tristar Reads

Wrapping Up the Summer with Tristar Reads

This is the final week of Tristar Reads and while the program is coming to a close, we hope you continue to keep reading throughout the school year. 

Recapping What We’ve Learned

Knowledge is power and you can gain knowledge through reading. As Tristar Reads comes to a close, we encourage you to keep reading, learning and growing. 

Here’s a quick overview of what we learned this summer: 

1. Your words have power. 

2. Dare to be your own person and celebrate who you are. 

3. You have the right to be heard. 

4. Take a leap of faith and get out of your comfort zone. 

5. Be humble by thinking of yourself less, not less of yourself. 

6. Stay optimistic. 

7. Be a leader. 

We’re thankful you joined us this summer as we discussed the way we can be superheroes in our day-to-day lives. 

We’d love your feedback on how we can improve Tristar Reads in the future. Would you take a moment to fill out our quick survey? We would appreciate any and all feedback.
