Summer Reading from ReadWorks.org

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Summer is a great time to support your child’s reading progress! Students who don’t read much over the summer show a decline in reading performance from the end of one year to the start of the next. Reading over the summer can help your child maintain the reading gains they made during the year AND also help prepare them for next year! 

Here are a few simple ways for you to help:

  1. Create your free Parent/Guardian account on ReadWorks.org

ReadWorks is a nonprofit that provides educators with thousands of free, high-quality nonfiction and fiction articles with questions and activities. ReadWorks is inviting you – all parents & guardians – to create your own free account to help your child stay on track this summer, and all year round!

  1. Go to www.readworks.org
  2. Click on “I’m an Educator”  (parents are educators too!)
  3. Click on the blue “Sign Up”
  4. Make sure to choose “Parent/Guardian” as your role
  1. Print Free Summer Reading Packets Now – www.readworks.org/summer-reading

To make summer reading easy, ReadWorks has curated interesting and knowledge filled summer reading packets on a range of levels that you can print and download for free!

Keep these tips in mind when using ReadWorks this summer:

 TIP 1: Summer reading should be accessible and enjoyable, so be sure to choose articles that are at your child’s reading level. Don’t be afraid to start with articles from lower grade levels. The important thing is that students, read, read, read!

TIP 2: Aside from giving your child access to these high-quality texts, helping them keep track of their summer reading and discussing what they’ve been read with family members can also go a long way!

I hope you and your family have a great summer!

THANK YOU and other important info!!

What a wonderful surprise I had…a RETIREMENT PARTY! given by the fifth grade students, teachers and parents! I will think of all of you as I enjoy using the gift cards you have gifted me.  What a cute idea!!   Your kindness overwhelms me and I truly appreciate your generosity and thoughtfulness.  The letters the kids wrote for me are being made into a book that I will truly treasure.

Having this group of fifth graders as my very last classroom of young people has been a wonderful way to end my career.   It has been my pleasure to have worked with all of your children.  They are a very positive and hard-working group of students who I am sure will continue to be successful.

REMINDERS:

June 11th 9AM-3PM Pool Party at Levegood

FIELD DAY, May 14th, VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Dear Parents and Guardians,

To help us celebrate another fantastic school year, we will be having Field Day on Monday, May 14, 2018.  For this Field Day event students will work through stations with their class to develop skills they have learned in physical education and have tons of fun!  The schedule for the event is as follows:

9:00 AM – 11:00 AM: Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Grades

1:00 PM – 3:00 PM: 3rd, 4th and 5th Grades

On May 14, students need to wear clothes that will allow them to be physically active outside, including tennis shoes.  They need to bring a water bottle. Students are highly encouraged to bring a water bottle that can be refilled at the refill station that we will provide.  

We are looking for one parent from each classroom to donate a treat for the entire class to enjoy after their session.  We are also pre-selling Fla-vor-ice as a cool treat for students to enjoy during the activities. The cost for the Fla-vor-ice is $0.50, only one Fla-vor-ice per student please. Fla-vor-ice money is due by Monday, May 7.

Lastly, we need 15 parent volunteers for both sessions to help run stations.  If you are interested in volunteering, fill out the lower portion and return it to Mr. Peecher.  Please, contact Mr. Peecher with any questions.

Thanks!  The PBIS/Field Day Committee  peeches@dearbornschools.org

Last Week to Donate “Coins for a Cause”

It’s time for the Quarter challenge!

This is the LAST WEEK for our endangered animal adoption project. We are reusing milk jugs to collect money for adopting a wolf through the Detroit Zoo, and we need your help!

We are asking for your help with our “Coins for a Cause” challenge.

Bring in as many extra quarters as you can to help fill our jugs! At the end of the week, we’ll count up the totals and announce our winners!

Did you know???

Wolves do NOT make good guard dogs because they are naturally afraid of the unfamiliar and will hide from visitors rather than bark at them!

A Couple of Things…

MStep
We have finished up the Language Arts Section of the MStep. Next week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we will be working on the Math part of the test. Please be sure your child has a good night’s sleep and eats breakfast!

Cardboard Arcade
The 4th and 5th grade classes are participating in a cardboard challenge in honor of Earth Day. Students are creating a game that is primarily made out of a cardboard box (other materials can be used as well, but the main material should be cardboard). If you have not had the chance to watch the video, Caine’s Arcade, please do so. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=faIFNkdq96U The focus is to use recycled materials in honor of Earth Day, please don’t run out and buy items.
Students should work on this project primarily at home. We will only have one day in class before the presentation date to finish up. Students can work alone or in groups. For fifth grade, this is not a graded project but we are encouraging all students to participate!
Your child will have a chance to share their game with the lower grades at the end of April (exact date TBD). Students from grades k-3 will have the chance to play the games while your child runs them. Should be a fun activity for all to enjoy!
