Summer Reading Challenge Reminder

Summer is just about over and the teachers and staff at Hambright are working hard to get ready to start the new year! We are all looking forward to seeing our students return and be ready to learn.

We hope everyone participated in the Summer Reading Challenge. Please remember to return your papers showing that you completed the challenge as soon as possible. All papers must be in by Tuesday, August 27 in order to be eligible for the ice cream truck reward.

End of year items

It’s hard to believe, but we’ve reached the end of another school year! How time flies!

Progress reports for students who are receiving Academic/Title I support will be in your child’s report card envelope on the last day of school.

Any parent who is interested in have their child tutored over the summer can contact Danielle Kreider at She has some interested teachers who may be available to help out.

Finally, it’s very important for your child to read over the summer. Make sure it’s at a level that’s not too hard and your child is able to understand. We find that our students who do not read over the summer lose a great deal of ground (progress) that was gained during the school year. We then spend the first marking period trying to recover from what was lost instead of continuing to grow more. It’s also very important for you to read to your child, no matter what age. Older students still benefit from being read to or with and enjoy the time with you. Talk about the stories and make predictions about what may happen next.

Enjoy your summer!!

AST and Title I Progress Reports

The AST/Title I Progress Reports for the third marking period will be coming home today with your child’s classroom report card. It will be in the brown envelope, along with a comment sheet should you want to ask any questions or make any comments. As always, feel free to contact the teachers listed at the bottom (or on the back of the report) if you have any questions you want to discuss.
