End of the Year Assessments

Shannon1It is hard to believe that we are almost done with the school year! Friday was the last day for reading support groups. Next week, I will meet individually with students to evaluate their reading progress. I am amazed by the reading gains that they have made this year. Each student has worked hard on becoming a thoughtful reader. I will be sending home a final reading report on the last day of school. It is so important that you encourage your child to read every day this summer. By continuing this practice, you can help maintain valuable skills learned this year.

Our school library will be open on Tuesdays, 10:00-12:00, throughout June and July. Students can check out 2 WEB books and 2 library books. Please take advantage of this great opportunity!

Summer Maintenance

Here are three ways that you can help your child maintain reading skills this summer. Print

1. Private one-on-one tutoring

This is an excellent way to help your child practice skills that have been learned this year. These teachers are providing private tutoring. Contact them soon, so that you have this support in place for the summer.

2. Open Library at Georgetown School

Our school library will be open on Tuesdays throughout June and July (10:00-12:00). We will have leveled books available as well as regular library books. Classroom teachers will be there to help your child find some great books.

3. Raz-Kids.com

This online reading website will be available for your child to use throughout the summer. This program, paid for by our wonderful Parent Club, provides leveled books that your child can listen to and read. There are also online rewards that your child can earn by completing comprehension quizzes on books that have been read.

Encourage your child to read every day. Continuous practice grows confident readers!!!
