GPSD is committed to providing continuous learning opportunities. Summer 2021 is upon us and we are excited to offer you a new way to engage in our summer reading program. Renaissance myON® Reader is a student-centered, personalized literacy environment that will give you access to more than 6,000 enhanced digital books. Titles are dynamically matched to each individual student’s interests, grade, and Lexile® reading level. Mississippi Department of Education Media Specialist has developed a list of books for you to read that are organized for you by the grade-level you will be entering during the 2021-2022 school year and each of our Media Specialist have designed projects within the myOn program.


Students and families may access these digital books for independent reading, research, and fun.  We hope you find this program as exciting as we do and you will join us in investing in your child’s literacy success.


To combat this potential loss, we are putting in place to ensure success for our students. Students who are in grades K-12 are required to read at least 2 books of their choice and at their grade level and/or interest level, as research suggests that “children who read four or more books over the summer fare better on reading comprehension tests in the fall than their peers who read one or no books over the summer”.  


Students in grades K-12 can include a list of the books read with the title and the authors’ names, and they will be allowed to take tests. These scores will be recorded in their ELA classrooms. Nonetheless, students must meet the afore mentioned requirements for grade and Interest level, and the book must be an Accelerated Reader book, which can be verified before reading at:  http://www/  To help with this initiative, students can check out books from the public library and access free eBooks and free audio books online; or they may simply purchase books for their personal library. As a note’ if a particular title is not on the shelf, another title by the same author may be read instead.


The William Alexander Percy Memorial Library’s Summer Reading Program is a fun and exciting way to accomplish school summer reading requirements.  Prizes are earned for books read and a drawing for one of two bicycles will be held for all students who complete the library reading requirements. Each student who earns a Certificate of Completion will be awarded extra points by his or her teacher in the fall. Sign up for the program begins June 1, 2021 at the William Alexander Percy Memorial Library.  Call the library at 662-335-2331 for details.


A partnership with the William Alexander Percy Memorial Library and the GPSD.
