Dion’s Summer Book Club in Partnership with Literacy Lubbock and Bean Elementary

Trends and Friends

LUBBOCK, Texas – Dion’s and Literacy Lubbock have partnered together to host the Dion’s Summer Book Club. The program aims to foster a love of reading among Bean Elementary students by distributing bags filled with books. The book club will be on July 22nd from Noon until 4:00 pm at the First Christian Church, 2323 Broadway, Kuykendall Hall. All students and parents from Bean Elementary are invited to attend. Liz Ruiz is the book club coordinator from Bean Elementary. We will have storytime, arts and crafts, games, and Dion’s Pizza. Teachers from Bean Elementary will volunteer at each of the 13 crafts and game stations.
Educators are aware of the “summer slide” (47%), the loss of academic skills that occurs when school is not in session, mainly attributed to the lack of reading. This is of critical importance as the effects of the summer slide are cumulative. Researchers estimate that by the time a struggling reader reaches middle school, summer reading loss has accumulated to a two-year lag in reading levels.
