Summer Reading Challenges
Calling all DCS students - we have a challenge … a summer reading challenge! In fact, students (and adults) have an opportunity to participate in one or more reading challenges this summer.
Read to a Million Summer Literacy Challenge
Students from all Genesee County school districts have been invited to participate in the Genesee District Library “Read to a Million Summer Literacy Challenge.” (C’mon Davison - we got this!)
Open to all students in grades PreK through 12, this challenge is simple to join! When you read this summer, simply log your books/pages in this Google Form: https://tinyurl.com/GISDreadtoamillion
Your books/pages will be tallied for Davison and the county. You can enter up to 10 different books at a time using the Google Form, which will be open until August 31. Help Genesee County get to a MILLION books/pages.
The Genesee Intermediate School District will hold a drawing at the end of the summer for any student who participated and will also be giving away a “Bucket of Books” to the top three districts with the most students (percentage) participating.
Audiobooks and parents reading to their child also count! You can log your book/pages for those as well using the Google Form.
Davison Community Schools Summer Reading Challenge
In what has become an annual tradition, DCS is once again holding its Davison Summer Reading Challenge for grades K-4. All reading counts! Every reader who returns his/her calendar signed by a parent will receive a new book. The goal of the program is to read 20 minutes each day over the course of the summer.

Tails and Tales Summer Reading Challenge
This challenge, offered through the Genesee District Library, runs from June 12 – August 7 and is open to all ages. Read, log your time and activities online and enter prize drawings. When you complete the challenge, collect your completion prize. Youth Services Librarian Marissa Boisclair has created a short video about the program, which you can watch here:
