Principal's Corner

Dear Parents and Guardians,

It is hard to believe the end of our wonderful school year is already upon us. I am exceedingly proud of all our students and staff have accomplished this year. Please know how much we all appreciate all you do as parents to assist our students in having success in school; we could not do it without you!

As the summer vacation begins, I ask you to focus on reading with your child. Students who read over the summer have more success when they return to school in the fall. In addition, students who do not read over the summer often lose some of the reading gains they worked so hard to achieve during the school year.

With that in mind, we have created the Sweet Success Summer Reading Program. Each child in kindergarten through grade four will come home with a reading packet. (Fifth grade students will have a middle school reading list.) Inside you will find a letter with your child’s current independent reading level. This indicates the level at which your child can read without assistance. You will also find book lists organized by reading level and by grade. These are merely suggestions; your child may read any book that he or she is interested in reading! There is also a reading log where your child should keep track of time spent reading. Enjoy some of the summer tips for parents on helping your child to read.

When your child returns to school in September, have them return their reading log. Those who do will receive rewards and surprises including free books, coupons for ice cream and more!

Please remember students will be dismissed at 12:30 on the last three days of school, Monday, June 19, Tuesday, June 20 and Wednesday, June 21. I wish you all a summer filled with lots of family time, fun and reading!

 Upcoming Dates:
June 19 – 12:30 dismissal
June 20 – 12:30 dismissal
June 21 – 12:30 Dismissal
September 7 – First day of school, 12:30 dismissal
September 8 – 12:30 dismissal
September 11 – First full day of school

 Best Regards,
 Sloan Scully
