Mayor's Summer Reading Challenge

Mayor Setti Warren Challenges all Kids and Teens to read this summer! 

 Summer reading helps kids and teens maintain their reading skills and return to school in September ready to learn.  And, it’s fun!  This summer, Mayor Warren is partnering with local businesses to get all Newton students reading – from preschoolers through high school.  Together, Newton can make the Mayor’s Summer Reading Challenge a real success.
