As we head back into summer, It is essential that our students continue to read so they keep all reading gains they have made this school year. Please visit our students and teachers only page and the summer reading page for summer reading activities.
Don't forget to take some time to sit down and read together as a family. Reading together helps your child with their reading fluency and also allows them to have a special bond with you.
If you are able to volunteer to read with a student as a part of the Every1Reads Program please contact the school at 485-8222 and ask to speak with Ms. Sowder.

While the blowing wind makes "porch doors sway" and "sea waves spray," it is responsible for much, much more. These same breezes send electron power traveling down windmills and circuits to ignite electricity. Electrons travel through power lines, and electricity charges the national grid so that lights may be turned on, cold homes may be warmed, and warm homes may be cooled. The gusts can help make "Factories hum / Harbors light up / Smart cars run."
