MyOn Summer Reading eBooks

myON-logo

 MyOn is an EXCITING, FREE new tool provided by Round Rock ISD for our England students to use during the summer! It is an expansive eBook library where students log in to their individualized accounts and can read eBooks that are both their interest level and reading level.

In the next two weeks, our England students will have an opportunity to log on to their account on the MyOn Digital eBook Library. Watch for a SUMMER LEARNING PACKET to come home during the last week of school — it will contain important passwords and information to continue your child’s learning experiences through the summer!
