The Sioux Center Library is excited to offer Summer SPLASH again this year to kids who’ve completed TK-8th grade. Designed to encourage reading and learning throughout the summer, SPLASH is filled with literacy activities, reading, drama, games, special guests, crafts, and FUN!
It is a common fact that reading in the summer is very important for students. The long break from school means that reading ability and comprehension can slip as a result. We want to encourage and promote reading and learning through the use of our SPLASH programming in order to help students fill the “summer gap” of reading.
The theme of Summer SPLASH follows our Summer Reading Program which is “On Your Mark, Get Set…READ!”. Each week of the program we’ll have special activities inspired by this theme such as wacky relays, mini Olympics, learning about the human body, dancing to a healthy body & playing games from around the world. The year’s Summer SPLASH will be held on every Wednesday from June 8 to July 13. There is the option for joining a morning or afternoon session.
Check out our website for dates and times for your children’s age at www.siouxcenterlibrary.org/library_program/summer-splash. The cost is $5.00 for all sessions. Space is limited so register soon by stopping at the circulation desk or registering on our website calendar.
