Did you participate in Roeper Reads? Bring your completed form to the Children's Library or email Carmen during the first week of school to be invited to our summer reading celebrations! Parties take place during lunch and recess for Stages I, II, and III. Stage IV and 6th grade share a party after school. Invitations will be sent home in mid September.
Roeper Reads is a multi-faceted summer reading program designed for the complex, creative, innovative children of Roeper! There are many ways to participate, listed below. We will have parties to celebrate Roeper Reads participants in the fall!
