SUMMER RECESS

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 Wednesday, September 2nd (Half Day).  Enjoy the vacation!

 


SCHOOL SUPPLIES

Please see the attachment regarding supplies for the 2015-2016 semester.  Although classroom assignments for September 2015 have not been established, please review the lists to gain a sense of the generic supplies being requested.  Towards the latter part of August, you will receive your child's classroom assignment enabling you the opportunity to purchase the specific items requested by the individual teachers.  Thank you for you ongoing support of our school community.

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 2015.  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
