Beach Day Reminders for Friday

Just a reminder:

Friday, May 27th is Beach Day!

Your child should wear his or her bathing suit to school under his or her clothing and bring a towel.  Students will not be permitted to change into their bathing suits at school, they should already have them on their bodies.  Please have sunscreen on your child before sending them to school.  Hats and/or sunglasses are also permitted!

(We do not have a rain date scheduled so a modified day will occur inside if rain is predicted.  Parent helpers may still attend if we have inclement weather. Reminder…only APPROVED VOLUNTEERS will be permitted to attend. Thank you for your help!


Summer Reading – Barnes & Noble

Students in grades 1 through 6 are eligible to participate in Barnes & Noble’s Summer Reading Program.

  1. Read any eight books this summer and record them on the Summer Reading Journal (paper attached).
    Tell which part of the book was your favorite and why.
  2. Bring your completed journal to a Barnes & Noble store between July 1 and August 31, 2022.
  3. Choose your free reading adventure from the books listed.

Schedule Changes – Reading Groups

As you are aware, your child has not brought home a new book in his or her green folder as regularly as they have previously. This is due to several reasons: PSSA testing was happening and we had whole group lessons rather than small group lessons, there have been days that supports were needed elsewhere and our schedule changed in the classroom, and currently, we are wrapping up the year and working on end-of-year assessments. All of this to say, we are still reading and writing it’s just happening in different ways. You may still have your child continue to practice reading and doing high-frequency words but they will no longer earn stars or prizes for doing so!

Finally, please continue to have your child read and write throughout the summer so all that they have learned is not lost! We have made great progress this year and you should be proud of your little readers and writers! Thank you for your support and for encouraging reading and writing at home.

Beach Day is on Friday, May 27th. This is a totally FUN day with reading, writing, and math done in a beach-themed way. The day would not be complete without a beach-like atmosphere too! The kids should wear their bathing suits under their clothes to school on this day. They will also need a towel and sunscreen (please apply the sunscreen prior to school). Sunglasses are also welcome! 🙂 We need some volunteers to help at the stations. If you are able to help with stations, please sign-up below. (We need at least 4 parent helpers to make this day happen but the more the merrier! As always, you must be an approved volunteer to help. Thank you in advance for volunteering your time!) AM-K is from 9:00-11:25 and PM-K is from 1:00-3:25. We will start inside with a craft and then go outside for 3 stations. We will end our time outside with a frozen treat and then go back inside for a writing activity. There will be no rain date. The activities will happen indoors if there is inclement weather. If you have any questions, please let me know.
