Coyote Trail Elementary School in the Marana Unified School District is hosting a free five-week summer reading program.

The program, which is open to students across the Tucson area, is for reluctant readers who will be starting third grade in the fall. It utilizes e-books, apps and e-readers, along with children’s literature and fun activities to build skills for the year ahead.

The reading program consists of two 90-minute sessions a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30 to 3 p.m. in the school library, 8000 N. Silverbell Road. Students will set reading goals and earn prizes as goals are achieved. The children’s librarian from Wheeler Taft Abbett, Sr. Library will also participate.

Limited space remains. Parents must attend a meeting Monday on campus at 5:30 p.m. For further information call Lisa Martin at 579-5105 ext. 6670.

The program is supported with funds granted by the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records, a division of the Arizona Secretary of State, under the Library Services and Technology Act, which is administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
