Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students, 

Summer is almost here and that means sun and time for the outdoors. It means time for swimming and camp and even summer jobs. It can even mean time for “all the nothing you want.” 

It also means more time to read what you want to read and more time to use one of our best community resources: The Public Libraries. Whether you are in Bridgewater or in Raritan, you have access to a vast, unending supply of reading materials. 

As the superintendent, I am challenging everyone to get involved:

●     Go to the Summer Reading Challenge at:

○     https://sclsnj.beanstack.org/reader365

●     Create an account

●     Make sure you specify your B-R school affiliation

●     Start logging your books and your days as you READ! 

No matter what you are reading, no matter what other challenges or contests you enter, all your reading can go into this log too!! 

Parents, please take the time to sign your students up for this and... sign up yourself. 

Help them build strong habits that will last a lifetime by reading with them and in front of them. Let them see you reading every day, logging your days, and logging every book you complete. Having them read is only one part. Letting them see you read is just as important. 

I am looking to see which of our buildings will have the most consistent logs, filled with the most interesting books. Remember, it's not about minutes. It is about building a consistent habit of reading every day and logging those days. 

And if you are asking about me, well my whole family and I are already registered, reading, and logging. We make sure to get outside and enjoy the summer weather, but we also make sure to make time for our reading. 

So join in on the fun and let's see which schools dominate this aspect of summer! 

Sincerely,​​​​​​​

Russell Lazovick
​​​​​​​Superintendent of Schools
