It’s hard to believe it’s the last newsletter of the year! We have had such an amazing and engaging school year. The Arts-related opportunities our students have participated in have been incredible. One of our student’s pieces of art developed during ELT time may be featured in a well-known Arts Magazine called, “The Lake Breeze.” It is a true celebration. From Culinary Exploration to Soil and Optics opportunities, our Expanded Day programming continues to offer rigorous enrichments that engage students’ learning.
Scheduling for our program is still being developed but our general school day will once again operate from 7:15am -3:30pm.
As summer will be soon approaching, I encourage parents to be sure to take advantage of opportunities to keep their children engaged during the summer months. It was fantastic to see so many parents registering their children for the numerous summer opportunities that are available through our district and our partners. In addition, I want to remind you to be sure to keep up with your child’s summer reading.
The “Summer Campaign 2015” initiative will provide books and literacy programs to encourage every Rochester child to read every day. Students in Grades K-2 will receive up to 10 books and students in Grades 3-6 will receive 2 books. Our entire community understands the importance of reading during the summer months. There is a packet of summer reading assignments that each student will receive. They must complete it and return it to our school Librarian, Ms. Emily Nortz when we return to school. We can’t wait for the book giveaway. The public library also has great summer reading programs happening for children with built in prizes and incentives!
Thank you for another wonderful year sharing your children with us! Watching their growth over the past year has been an incredible honor. Have a safe summer!
