Hello to all the Samuel Gaines Academy Summer Scholars. Students in grades kindergarten through 7th grade received a Summer Scholar Sac at the awards ceremony on June 1st.
Parents, please go over the program materials with your children. Students received a free book and a form to write a book review when they finish reading their book. Students who bring the book review back to school in August will be invited to an ice cream social where they will get to share their book review with other students while enjoying a sweet treat.
Also included in the materials are 100 Book Challenge Reading logs to be completed by the parents and student to document students’ reading minutes over the summer. We hope every student reads at least 30 minutes a day which will earn them 2 steps. The steps earned over the summer will be credited to your students’ reading record in August. Students can earn 148 steps if they read for 30 minutes each day of summer. Remember to visit one of the public library branches near you to check out books, DVDs or use their computers.
Students who will be in grades 1-5 should also practice their High- Frequency Words and complete a fun math activity each day. Parents should remember to initial each activity your child completes. Extra school supplies will be given to students who complete the activities and return the forms in August.
Lastly, try some of the fun educations APPS suggested on the Samuel Gaines Summer Scholars flyer.
