Summer Resources

Summer is an important time for families.  I look forward to spending time with both my children, engaged in activities of their choosing.  This time helps us reconnect with our children.  However, we understand that too much down time may lead to what we call the “summer slide”, especially in the critical areas of reading and math.
While we have not assigned any mandatory assignments for students to complete before they come back in September, we have put together some resources for you, as parents, to use with your students.

In addition, students have an opportunity to participate in Dr. Bigsby’s Reading Challenge.  Students who read  a total of 10 books (Fiction and/or Non-Fiction) and complete a total of 10 Log Entries this summer will qualify for a pizza or sub lunch with Dr. Bigsby.  The LINK to the Log Entries can be found on the Summer Reading Suggestions page or click HERE.  The Challenge ends 8:00PM on August 31st.
