Thank you for a wonderful year filled with learning and friendship! We have enjoyed our time with your child and look forward to a relaxing summer break. Whatever you are doing over the summer, your time is the most valuable thing you have to offer your children. Spend time reading, taking walks, playing a game, recording a family history, or cooking a meal together - just to name a few ideas! Please encourage your child to read every day over the summer. Comic books and magazines count but it’s better to choose a good book at the library. Practicing longer, so-called “stamina” reading is an important skill. Also, there is a low-cost math skills online program called DreamBox that you might want to consider for maintaining and improving your child’s math skills. Also, remember that summer is about great fruits and vegetables, cookouts and awesome ice cream, too. The first day of school for students is Tuesday, September 4th and our traditional Meet Your Teacher Day is Friday, August 31st from 9-11. Be safe, be kind, and HAVE A GREAT SUMMER. See you in a few months for another great year!
