June 12, 2017
Welcome to June! This is a busy time in school, so it is important that all of our families have what they need as we prepare for the end of the school year. June has a lot of great activities and we want to be sure that you are well informed. Please check your child’s backpack daily for grade level updates as well as our web page. Here are a few of our school-wide activities:
Wednesday, June 14th: Flag Day/Field Day
Monday, June 19th: Early dismissal 11:30
Tuesday, June 20st : Summer Reading Kick Off Assembly; Early dismissal 11:30
Wednesday, June 21st : Early dismissal 11:30
Thursday, June 22nd : Level 5 Promotional Assembly; Last Day for Student Attendance
Over the summer we encourage you to have your children maintain a routine of reading and reviewing math facts. Web sites, such as Raz Kids and IXL Math, are engaging and your children are familiar with them. As we have done the last few years, we are continuing with our Scholastic Reading Summer Challenge. Please check your child’s backpack the last week of school. They will have their pass codes they can use to log in their summer reading minutes. Last year we read a total of 68,658 and the year before we read 56,256 minutes. Let’s keep this trend growing and read, read, read and remember to log in minutes.
Over the summer children tend to lose some of what they have learned and working a little each day over the summer will decrease the summer slide. Whatever method of review you choose will help your child be successful in the new school year.
Many parents ask about class placements. As we have done in the past, letters will go out in mid- August. Class placements are carefully organized and reviewed. It is the goal of the committee to create classrooms that are balanced and thoughtful of individual student needs.
From everyone at CAS, we hope you have a wonderful fun-filled summer. September will be here before you know it, so enjoy your time with your children and create lasting memories. The office will be open Monday-Thursday during the summer between the hours of 7:00-4:00. Let us know if you need anything.
Best summer wishes!
Mrs. Danielle Lango
