Thanks to community partners including the Exempt Fireman’s Association and Beulah Baptist Church, all first graders of Morse Elementary School and two first grade classes in Warring Elementary School received a donation of books for summer reading. Summer reading prevents “summer loss” or “summer slide” a regression in reading ability that happens during periods of extended time out of the classroom. These books help to ensure that the students will return in September, ready to progress to the next grade-level. The Poughkeepsie City School District is thankful for all our community stakeholders, especially the Exempt Fireman’s Association and Beulah Baptist Church for partnering with us in Mission Literacy for every child, every day, in every classroom.

Just before Poughkeepsie’s students rushed out the school doors for summer vacation, each rising 3rd grader received a brand new copy of the chapter book How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell, thanks to the generosity of the Millman Harris Romano Foundation. “We are thrilled to encourage summer reading for Poughkeepsie youth, and equally thrilled that they can read the book and bring their families to watch the Movie Under the Walkway, for free,” said Jode Millman, foundation chair, on Monday, June 22, as the books were distributed in Poughkeepsie City Elementary Schools.
