#Leaping4Literacy Books


Dear CASD Families,

We hope that your child has received his or her #leaping4literacy Scholastic package. This package includes three books, corresponding “Think Sheets” and a parent guide. We hope you will enjoy using these resources together!

The items were provided by the Chambersburg Area School District Foundation as part of our #leaping4literacy campaign. Although COVID-19 stalled our campaign, we were still able to raise sufficient funds to provide three books for every child in grades K-5 thanks to the generosity of our community. Chambersburg understands how important it is to have children reading over the summer to prevent learning loss and we are grateful for the financial support that made this possible.

If you have not yet received your child’s package, please contact Angela Lynch, CASD Foundation director, at with your child’s name, school building, and your home address so that she can confirm shipment. 

We would love to see pictures of your child reading or with their books. If you would like to share them with us, please send to  These pictures may be used as part of our summer video as well as on social media platforms and district and foundation websites. (Please know that sharing them with us indicates that you are giving permission to use them.)    

Thank you for taking the time to read with your child. We appreciate all that you are doing this summer!
