Dear Parent/Guardian,

Monte Vista is gearing up for summer break. While summer presents an opportunity to relax and enjoy the sunshine, we want our students to continue to find ways to learn while away from the classroom.

We have an exciting reading service available through Sora, the student reading app, which provides free 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks. What better way to engage your student’s mind than through reading?

This summer, the OverDrive Summer Read program will offer a collection of Juvenile and Young Adult titles that will be prominently displayed in Sora for quick and easy unlimited access from June 6 – August 15, 2019. You can explore the title offerings and learn more about the program here:
