Tequesta's Summer Reading & Math Challenges

Summer Reading!

Did you know that when kids read over the summer, they are more likely to leap ahead when they return to school?  This is often called the “summer leap,” and we’ve made it a priority to keep your child’s skills sharp by encouraging them to read and practice their math skills all summer long.

This year, our school will participate in the Beanstack Summer Reading Challenge, a free reading program that invites students to keep track of their reading minutes all summer long.  Students will find Beanstack directly on their Clever Launchpad!

Students get to choose their own summer reading material and make it a goal to read 20 minutes a day. When students enter their reading minutes in Beanstack from May 17th to September 6th, they will earn digital rewards as they watch their reading minutes stack up! Additionally, the minutes students log for Tequesta's Summer Reading Challenge in Beanstack will automatically be logged in the nationwide Level Up Summer Reading Challenge sponsored by Mark Cuban.

Now you can link your school Beanstack account with the Broward County Public Library account to participate in the BCL Summer Learning Program. Click here for instructions. Learn more at:

We are also participating in the i-Ready Summer Challenge which runs from June 9th through July 31st. Students will be assigned 10 Reading and 10 Math lessons based on their current grade level. Students fill out the lesson log as they pass lessons and return their log when school starts in August!
