    Research shows that summer can set kids on the right or wrong course.  The research is clear that children who don't read during the summer can lose up to three months of reading progress and that loss has a cumulative, long-term effect (Reading Rockets).  Peoria Public Schools wants to encourage all our students to stay on the right course this summer.  So Dr. Kherat and her team have developed the Remarkable Readers Raffle, an initiative to get all students reading this summer.
    How Does It Work?
    It’s simple.  Every Peoria Public Schools incoming K-8 student reads.  He or she then tracks his or her reading during the summer weeks.  Each student who successfully reads a minimum of thirty minutes, four times each week will have the opportunity to be submitted to the Remarkable Readers Raffle.  Students must record the title of the book and a brief note of the reading.  Students must read all eleven weeks and successfully complete the tracking document to be submitted into the raffle.  Students then turn the tracking document their teacher by the first week of the 2017-2018 school year.  Winners will be drawn at the district office and awarded their prizes at a September Board of Education Meeting.  Students who successfully complete all eleven weeks will read a minimum of 1,320 minutes or 22 hours.  A winner will be drawn from each grade level.
