Did you know that the single most important thing for young readers is the amount of time they spend reading? Summer is a time when children, like most of us, can carve out some time to read and enjoy books of personal interest. So, along with building sand castles and watching fireworks, please encourage your child to read!
During the last week of school, your child received a letter containing his/her Fountas and Pinnell Independent Reading Level (IDR). The IDR will assist you and your child in selecting a "just right book". For assistance with searching for a book by IDR or finding the level of a specific tile, you will find Scholastics' "Book Wizard" helpful.
For a complete list of 2015 notable children's books, including this year's Newbury, Caldecott, and Coretta Scott King Award and Honor books, please visit the Association for Library Service to Children.
As a parent/guardian, you may be looking for great book recommendations and tips on how to get your child reading throughout the summer months. We highly recommend you access James Patterson's site, READKIDDOREAD.com.
Please see below for Cedar Drive Middle School's Summer Reading Information. Parents, please be aware that there are different assignments for students entering grade 6, grade 7, and grade 8 in September.
As your children’s school year comes to an end, thoughts of sleeping late and spending time with friends are, no doubt, on their minds. We hope they will spend just a little time reviewing and maintaining the math skills they acquired this year, as to assist with the prevention of any “summer slide” that may occur over the summer.
To ensure that your children have a successful start in their math class, we have prepared a Summer Math Assignment that will be completed by students prior to the start of classes in September. They will be assessed on the concepts in the packet at the start of the school year.
Please encourage your child to work on the assignment consistently throughout the summer. Thank you for your help and cooperation.
