Superintendent's myON Reading Challenge
In an effort to build a consistent, year-round culture of reading throughout Osceola's school community, parents are encouraged to have their students utilize two free summer reading resources:
is a personalized literacy environment that offers unlimited access to thousands of enhanced digital books for students at all grade levels. Students in Grades K-12 can access myOn online with any web-enabled device and offline using the free mobile app for iPad, Android, Chromebooks, and KindleFire HD, making it possible for them to read wherever they are and whenever they want to read. Osceola students have free access to myOn through the company’s generous donation.

Username: Child's ID#
Password: Child's birth month and day (MMDD - Example: February 4=0204)
All students are invited to join the Osceola myON Summer Reading Challenge that will run from June 10 - August 9, 2016. Superintendent Dr. Debra Pace has challenged all students to read at least five myOn books over the summer months. The top five elementary readers and the top five secondary readers as judged by the total number of minutes read will be recognized at a School Board meeting. All students who read at least 10 books will be entered into a drawing to win one of two iPad minis. Additionally, the top two elementary schools and the top two secondary schools will be recognized by the Osceola County School Board and Superintendent Pace. The myOn program will automatically track a student's reading minutes.
is a revolutionary prekindergarten through third grade literacy solution that uses mobile technology. Every child in Osceola County has access to this free app. Students who are currently enrolled in an Osceola school can download the app and sign in using the “super secret code” given by the child’s teacher. Parents of young children who are not yet in school can also sign up at OsceolaReads.com.
Parents and students are also encouraged to check with their school to find out about individual school summer reading initiatives, open library dates, and recommended or required books for student reading.
