Roger Clap Summer Reading (2021)

  • When students return to school in the fall, all students will engage in a shared experience around the text. Additionally, we have a Youtube Playlist of Roger Clap Staff (including our new staff for the 21-22 school year) reading sections of the book. We hope this is one way to continue to build a community of readers over the summer and help your student and family get to know their new teachers!
