2015 MyOn Summer Reading Challenge
We are thrilled to announce the 2015 myON Summer Reading Challenge—Every Hero Has a Story! The magic of myON is that you have access to more than 5,000 enhanced digital books while your child is out of school for the summer. We encourage you to read at least 20-30 minutes a day with your child at home during summer vacation to prevent the “summer slide” and prepare them for the school year ahead!
Students can participate in contests to win exciting prizes!

SPECIAL Summer Reading Lists have been made so your student can begin to prepare for the upcoming year. Students are encouraged to read from their RECOMMENDED List and the TEACHER List, so they can access the content that is just right for them. After completing a book, students are encouraged to rate and review the book in myON. Some of the reviews may be published at your child’s school in 2015-2016.
During the summer, students will have a chance to take a Benchmark test on myON to adjust their individual reading bookshelf or Recommended List to ensure books are at the child’s interest and independent reading level. NOTE to Parents: Please allow your student to take their Benchmark testindependently so your child’s true reading growth can be measured accurately. Benchmark scores have NO impact on contest results.
Help your child be a reading hero this summer by logging into read on myON. Should you have any questions, please contact your child’s school or the VCS T&L Department at 229-671-6061.
