ASU Summer Readers

A big thank you to all parents who helped their child keep up with their ASU Summer Reading Log and turned it in the first week of school. We had 54 students who turned their log in and received a trip to the treasure chest as well as an ASU Mountaineer pencil. Thank you parents for reading with your child and stressing the importance of reading!
