From the Principal!

Every summer students across the country lose valuable reading and math skills over the summer. Students can lose more than two months of instruction. This is known as “Summer Slide”. “Summer Slide is a real issue that occurs when students are not reading and thinking critically over the summer. This year we have a plan to battle the “Summer Slide”.

This summer West Utica students are invited to attend camp Read S’More! Camp Read S’More is a new fun filled program designed to keep students reading and participating in fun math activities all summer long. This program will take place here at West Utica and is free of charge to all West Utica students.

On June 6th, 2018 from 4p.m. to 5 p.m. all classroom teachers will hold an informational meeting where parents will learn about the effects of “summer slide”, our summer book fair, choosing “good fit” books, West Utica Reads website, scheduled camp check-ins, summer math
practice book use, and summer math games. An Alternate daytime meeting will be scheduled for parents as well, led by the consultant team. We encourage all parents in all grade to attend!

June 7th – June 13th we will be hosting a free summer book fair. Student’s will “shop” for their free summer reading books. This will take place here at school and student will be able to select books to read over the summer. There is no charge for the books.

Throughout the summer we will be hosting Camp Read S’more parties. At these parties we will have fun activities for the students, additional book selections, family math games that you can take and play at home. Students can bring back books and math game at each summer party to exchange them for different books and math games all summer long. Our teaching staff will be at all the summer parties to check in and assist with our summer workbooks. Special fun filled activities and surprises will be at each party.

The tentative dates for the Camp Read S’more are as follows: June 27, July 11, July 25, August 8 and August 22. More information will be coming home.

Thank you,

Principal Bradley Suggs
