As the 2013-2014 school year draws to a close, I want to express to all of you my deepest appreciation for your continued support. Our experience staff is dedicated to providing every child with the best educational opportunity possible and your commitment to your child has truly added to the success of our school.
You’ve been involved with your child’s learning throughout the school year. Summer is a time to expand upon what has been learned in school by including educational activities which encourage children to make new discoveries. Some of these activities include:
- Read with your child. Set aside a family reading time.
- Visit the library. Take part in special summer reading programs and library activities.
- Play word and reading games. Introduce new games suited to your child’s educational level.
- Encourage your child to write. Writing may include letters, stories, or a journal of summer activities. If you are planning a vacation this summer, have your children write to the department of tourism in states you plan to visit.
- Plan outings together as a family. Visit museums, the park, performances, and local events.
- Help children plan shows or performances. These may include puppet shows, plays, or special dances planned for family and friends.
- Begin a new hobby. Start a collection, work on puzzles, put together a model, or learn a craft.
On behalf of the school staff and myself, I’d like to wish you and your family a safe and enjoyable summer.
Joan Taylor, Ed.D.
