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 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

Please participate in this wonderful New York State Senate Summer Reading Program!  This program is sponsored by the New York State Senate and the New York State Library. It promotes literacy and encourages reading throughout the summer, and is open to all grade levels. 

 

Students can participate by logging on to:  http://StewartCousins.NYSenate.gov/, click on the "Summer Reading Program" box located on the front page which will redirect them to a dedicated website where they can track their reading progress as well as share this progress with family and friends. At the end of the program, participants will receive a formal recognition for their reading achievement.

 

Thank you in advance for your assistance in helping make the Summer Reading Program a success!
