All students are challenged to read every day this summer, for at least 15 to
Suggested summer reading goals for students based on grade levels are:
K-2 - students: 10 books
3-5 - students: 8 chapter books
Students need strong reading skills in order to be successful at school and, later, in
the workplace. Research shows that students who read proficiently by the end
of third grade are more likely to be successful later in life. Students who fail to
meet this milestone falter in the later grades.
Research has found that when children leave the structured environment of the
classroom for summer break, many stop reading – and their reading abilities start
to slip. Strong readers plateau. Struggling readers fall even farther behind.
Enclosed are 3 options to keep your reading skills sharp this summer! Participate
Fulton County Schools Enrollment Online
Online Enrollment Parent Guide
Online Student Enrollment
Fulton County Schools is making it easier for parents of new students to complete their child's registration for enrollment into a Fulton County School. Parents can access the easy-to-complete, online form here. This option allows parents to control the data supplied for their student's enrollment and provide for more timely processing of the enrollment request. Parents can upload copies of the required supporting documents in .pdf, jpeg, and .tif formats. A list of required documents can be found here. While this registration process will make it easier, parents will still need to bring their original to the school prior to the start of school. School personnel, must verify the authenticity of the documentation prior to enrollment being completed. View Flyer here
