• Parkway Summer Reading

    Each summer, Parkway circulates new summer reading lists in a brochure or flyer format for grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and high school. The lists were adopted from ALSC (Association for Library Service to Children), ILA (International Literacy Association), MASL (Missouri Association of School Librarians), YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association), and The Best of Titlewave from Follett.The criteria for many of the books on these lists were based on overall appeal, exposure to authors, diversity, genre variety, and relevance.  The current flyer format creates a manageable list with adequate choice to encourage students to read for fun. Summer reading is a chance for students to learn to read for pleasure. The lists and additional resources can be found below. Also, be sure to use the hashtag #parkwayreads to organize social media posts about reading in Parkway.
