Summer is officially here. Thanks for a great year. I have so many wonderful memories of the 2019-20 school year. It was definitely a year that we will always remember.
One of the changes that happened this spring was the ability to AR test at home. The ability to test at home will also be available throughout the summer. As a school, we wanted to utilize this to allow kids to earn awards over the summer for their reading. It will look very different than the regular school year AR reading program. It is completely voluntary. There will not be any goals, parties or awards for being the top reader. Teachers will not be monitoring it over the summer either. We wanted to keep it simple and easy.
When summer vacation ends we will check your points. You can earn a prize for reaching 4 different point levels for the summer. The prizes will be given out when school starts in the fall. Here are the levels:
If you earn 1 point over the summer you earn a rainbow lollipop
If you earn 10 points over the summer you earn a multi-colored pen, cool eraser and neon sunglasses
If you earn 15 points over the summer you earn a milk shake
If you earn 20 points you will get to order a book from our first book order this fall
So, if you get 20 points earned, you’ll get one lollipop, a pen, an eraser, some sunglasses, one milk shake and one free book of your choice.
I have visited with the town library and they have an awesome summer reading program. As you read books for their program you can also earn prizes for our program by testing on them and earning points. I want to encourage you to participate in their program. They have a great plan for the summer, and you can earn some cool stuff.
Did you know that one of the many benefits of reading is that it reduces stress? It can take us to new and amazing places. I hope you all pick up a good book this summer and find joy in all of your adventures.
Have a super and safe summer.

Hello parents and students,
We have come to the official close of the school year. What an incredible journey. Today would have been our end of the year awards assembly. We wanted to recognize the students who earned some of those achievements. While many of the programs could not be completed, we did have several that were able to get completed before the closure. Those accomplishments are listed here. I also want to recognize all of our students for their hard work this year. We live in a wonderful place where hard work, respect and kindness are commonplace among our students. Those attributes are the norm with our students and not the exception. Thank you parents for raising your students with the values and characteristics that will make them successful in life wherever they go. Thank you students for coming to school everyday ready to learn. Thank you 6th graders for being so tremendous to work with these past 7 years. We will miss you next year. I am confident that you will be successful in junior high. You have represented our school well. Thank you!
