Welcome to Our Lady of Perpetual Help’s 2020 Summer Reading Challenge!

Did you know reading 4-5 books over the summer can prevent a decline in reading achievement? This year Our Lady of Perpetual Help is again making it a priority to keep your child’s skills sharp by encouraging them to read all summer long.


To participate, each student will keep track of his or her minutes on a personal reading calendar. At the end of the month, total minutes will be entered into a Google Form for tracking purposes. Prizes will be awarded throughout the summer based on participation. When students submit their reading minutes each month throughout the summer they will earn digital certificates as they meet their monthly reading goals. The goals for this summer are 800 minutes (15 minutes per weekday) for 1st thru 5th grades and 1200 minutes (20 minutes per weekday) for 6th thru 8th grades.

At the beginning of next school year Mrs. Henrich will review the reading minutes of all students. Every student that participates in the program will receive a certificate. The student with the greatest number of reading minutes in each class will be recognized and entered into a drawing for a prize. Last summer we read 161, 198 minutes. Let’s aim to beat last year’s total!


#olphreads returns this summer. This year we are focusing on WHAT you’re reading. For every photo you submit to photos@olphbeth.org showing you and the cover of the book you’re reading, you will earn an entry into a drawing for an awesome prize. The drawing will take place at the beginning of the school year.
