Commissioner of Education Frank Edelblut encouraged school superintendents to take steps to foster summer learning and improve student achievement particularly at the elementary level.

“With that in mind, we thought that there wasn’t a better way to encourage reading for our students than to start their summer with a great, brand-new book of their own,” said SAU 24 Superintendent of Schools Lorraine Tacconi-Moore. “We encourage all of our students to be lifelong learners and hope this gift of a book helps them along on that journey.”

Every student at the Henniker Community School, James Faulkner Elementary, Center Woods Elementary and Upper Elementary School took home a brand new book to read during summer vacation. Gibson’s Bookstore in Concord provided book discounts and delivered the books to the schools in Henniker and Weare.
