Summer Reading Project
Dear Parents and Guardians, Are you looking for an inexpensive and fun solution to ensure your child continues the progress they've made in reading this school year? Look no further than your local library! Studies show that when students are engaged in educational activities during the summer, they avoid the "Summer Slide," a loss in academic achievement or reading skills.
Attached you will find a few friendly reminders regarding end of year policies and procedures. With only 2 weeks of school left we need to continue to encourage all students to stay on their best behavior and continue to follow all School Polices and Procedures.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
