CSD Summer Reading

So Many Books...So Little Time

How does CSD Summer Reading work?

The purpose of the CSD Summer Reading Challenge is to encourage in each student a lifelong love of reading and to create a community of readers by providing students with varied opportunities to engage with texts.

We are asking all Centennial School District students to read for pleasure throughout the summer, and to keep a record of their summer reading on the CSD Summer Reading Challenge Form. Students who complete summer reading can submit this form as their entry ticket in a prize drawing given by each building.


We also ask that families support student reading during the summer, and encourage you to read along with your students as well. Your participation in summer reading is important for us to create a true Centennial community of readers.


Students: In order to qualify for a prize drawing upon return to school, you are encouraged to participate in the CSD Summer Reading Challenge through one or more of these opportunities:

  • Read self-selected texts independently (Texts are considered to be books, E-books, audiobooks, magazines, electronic periodicals, graphic novels, poetry collections, plays, short fiction, etc.)
  • Participate in Reading Olympics
  • Participate in the Big Summer Read (HS)
  • Complete reading assignments from AP Course reading lists (HS)

Please click on the links to the left to access information regarding your specific grade level.


Prior to summer break, students should print a copy of the CSD Summer Reading Challenge Inventory Form (see link below) and complete it as they read during the summer. Upon their return to school in September, students should submit the form to their school librarian. The completed Inventory Form will serve as the student’s ‘raffle ticket’ for the prize drawing. All forms are due no later than September 6, 2019
