Pheffer Amato Launches Summer Reading Program

July 1, 2020

South Queens, New York – This week, Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato (D-South Queens) launched her annual Summer Reading Program for all students from 3-K to 12th Grade throughout the 23rd Assembly District.

“Our students have endured so much through this pandemic, and I am so proud of what they have accomplished,” Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato said. “For me, reading has always been an escape, and the Summer Reading Challenge is a chance for our students to escape and dive into some great books. I look forward to rewarding them for completing the challenge when school -remote or in the classroom- comes back in September!”

The program starts in July but continues throughout the summer. Students must commit to reading for 15 minutes a day for 40 days in order to receive a certificate from the Assemblywoman’s office. Last year the Assemblywoman gave out thousands of calendars, and bookmarks to every student in the 23rd Assembly District spanning over 40 schools.

To request a summer reading calendar and bookmark individuals can email, or call Pheffer Amato’s District Office at 718-945-9550, and her office will either email or mail a copy to any student.
