I hope that all students have a safe, restful, fun summer.
Please be sure to devote some time to the district's summer reading initiative.
There is an assignment related to the required summer reading and will be addressed when we return from vacation (this information is also posted on our school web site). In addition, I strongly encourage students to read, keep a daily journal and practice their mathematics facts.
All students will report to school on Tuesday, September 6th (Full Day). Enjoy the vacation!

In preparation for next year's achievement in language arts, your child is required to read four books from the Summer Reading List (sent home with students and available on www.yonkerspublicschools.org
) by September 2016. Each of the books on the list is available at libraries or bookstores. Your child is expected to write a short description of their favorite part of the story for each book chosen.
Teachers will be collecting the summer reading assignment in September. Each book and activity completed will count toward your child's goal of reading 25 books for the next school year.
Your cooperation in our effort to further your child's success is always appreciated
