Skate Party

The PTA is planning a skating party at Roller City from 4:15 to 6:00 p.m. The cost of skating is $4.00 per person with the students being transported to the skating rink by district school bus. Please be sure to come into the rink between 6:00 and 6:15 p.m. to check your child out. Permission slips will be sent home prior to the event and students will not be allowed to enter the bus without a signed slip. Please note the skating money and spending money must be in separate envelopes.

Now you can check your child's progress in Accelerated Reader and Accelerated Math from home. Renaissance Learning has released a Home Connect program. Follow this link and use the same log in information your child uses at school.

Kansas regulations now require that we provide all parents with notice of policies regarding Emergency Safety Interventions ("ESI''). The State of Kansas policy is available on our website and in our student handbooks. In addition, we will provide a copy of the policy at any time upon request.

Latchkey before school is provided through the Haysville Activity Center (HAC). For information to sign up your child for morning latchkey or for drop in care for your kids on days in which school is out.

Call the school if you are interested in becoming a teacher helper, tutor, field trip monitor, etc. The students need YOU!

Literacy First

SUMMER READING LOSS

Summer reading loss refers to the decline in children's reading development that can occur during summer vacation times when children are away from the classroom and not participating in formal literacy programs (Allington & McGill-Franzen, 2003). The reality of significant summer reading loss has been well documented in a variety of studies in student achievement. Of all the activities in which children engage outside of school, time spent actually reading is the best predictor of reading achievement. The more students read, the better readers they become (Allington, 2006; Anderson, Wilson, & Fielding, 1988). So, looking for exciting and interesting books and reading materials for your child will be beneficial and fun!

Here are a few ideas for encouraging your students to read this summer:

  • Daily routines provide reading opportunities. Cooking, using the phone book, looking for information on the internet, reading directions for using a new gadget, or reading a brochure or article about a vacation destination are all ways to provide authentic reading experiences.
  • Create a positive attitude about reading so that your child sees it as a reward instead of a punishment. Model how to use reading to learn about hobbies or interests. Read together and share about what you have read.
  • Books and other reading materials can be made available during transition times. Children can read on the way to a destination, or while waiting for an appointment.
  • Make regular visits to the library and allow your child to explore different reading materials. Librarians can offer suggestions that might be a good match for a child's interests and reading level. And be sure to check out the summer reading activities for children that are offered through many libraries.
  • Keep in mind that reading books that seem slightly below a child's reading level or books that have become "old favorites" can help a developing reader to build confidence and fluency.
