Sora Book Rental Form for Summer Reading
Some of the options for required summer reading titles are listed below, and you may rent them through the SORA app, if you wish to do so. The books that you rent will appear on your child's iPad for either 2 or 3 months, and the fee for the rental will be charged to your PDS Account. Please fill out this form if you wish to rent any of the following titles through SORA. You may choose to rent one, two, or all three of the titles offered per grade and the books will count as books from the reading list and part of the five your child will read this summer. Once you fill out this form, the books will be ordered for your child's SORA account to be delivered to iPads.
