By on June 26, 2011

YORKVILLE—State Representative Kay Hatcher has launched a new season of her popular “Foxy Readers” Summer Reading Club for area students who pledge to continue reading during their summer vacation.

“Not all education is formal,” Hatcher said. “I want to encourage elementary school students in our district to spend part of their summer vacation again this year exploring where good books can take them.”

Hatcher is sponsoring her “Foxy Readers” Summer Reading Club again this year in cooperation with area libraries. The club is open to all first through fifth grade students in the 50th district. Informational flyers are available by contacting Rep. Hatcher’s office or by visiting your local library.

Summer Readers will be encouraged to read at least eight books during their vacation, then list their books on the flyer and return it to Representative office by Aug. 1. Those who complete the reading will be recognized with certificates of achievement and invited to a certificate award ceremony and party in the fall.
