Portfolio Manager Sandy Chin Introduces Summer Reading Program for Students

Sandy Chin is a portfolio manager who has established herself as a top professional in her field. As well as being a success in her career, Sandy is also very much involved in the community. Within the past year, Sandy realized that local elementary school students have been in need of enhancing their reading skills. However, a number of local public school students at PS11 are not able to afford books. As a result, they are not able to maintain their reading skills while on their summer vacation. Chin has looked to help solve this issue by providing an opportunity to for kids to get access to books more easily.


It has been known that most elementary school students don’t read that often during their summer break. With a three month break between school years, students will often have a reduction in their reading skills. As a result, they can have a decline by one grade level in terms of their reading skills. Therefore, it has been essential that they have access to books so that they can keep up with their reading skills during the summer. While they are encouraged to read during the summer and visit libraries, many are not able to. Sandy Chin has volunteered to help solve this problem by holding a book drive. This entails receiving book donations and then offering them to students. At the end of the school year, students are offered to take a few books to read over the summer.
