Message from the Principal
I trust that our families are enjoying a fun and safe summer enjoying each other. As you have fun on the beach, playing outside, going on vacations, etc… remember to take a book along to read. Our students have all received the Governor’s Summer Reading Challenge log to document the books read throughout the summer. These are to be brought to school in August.
This year, the focus for all grades will be on increasing Oral Fluency. The more students read, the more fluent they become. Reading to students makes them better readers. For grades 2-8 it is important that students read independently at home for at least 35 minutes. For grades K-1 it should be a minimum of ten minutes with increased time as the fluency improves. The public library has books leveled according to the DRA levels which will help parents identify appropriate books for grades K-3.
I am looking forward to a successful 2015-2016 school year and your continued support and commitment to our students and community. The first day for students is on August 27, 2015. That is a one session day from 8:50 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. Students should be lined up no earlier than 8:40 a.m.
School supply lists are available at the school or on our website.
The school office is open for registering or withdrawing children, as well as to answer any questions. Please call before you come to school to be sure personnel is in the office at the time you plan to visit us.
