Summer Reading List

Summer is the perfect time to catch up on your reading. Check out the Summer 2022 Suggested Reading List that was compiled by Chesapeake Public Schools librarians.

Over the summer, choose books on the grade level they will be going into. (Unless you know that your child needs modifications up or down.)

Reading–lots and lots of reading–is the only way to keep kids growing as readers. But kids need lots of good books. That is why the CPS librarians have made this book list.

African American History Month

Dr. Martin Luther King JrBlack History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. Also known as African American History Month, the event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating Black history.

During the month of February, we have many exciting activities to share with the students and community.

Sharks Continue to Strive for Greatness!
