Happy Summer!

Don’t let learning stop over the summer! Please find links in this newsletter to Saxon Math Review packets for 1st-5th Grades and the Required Summer Reading List.

Links to the Embers Summer Reading Program were provided in last week’s newsletter.

Summer Learning Programs

To ensure a successful transition to the next grade level in September, please make sure that your child completes the following:

Saxon Math Review packets

While these grade-level review packets are not required, they are highly encouraged.  All students who complete their grade-level review packet and submit it to their teacher on Tuesday, September 7th will be invited to participate in a Math Celebration at the start of the school year. Please click on the grade level that your child will be entering this fall to obtain their Math Review packet.

Required Summer Reading

All students entering Grades 1 – 5 have one required book to read this summer. Click HERE for a list of the books assigned to each grade level.  This is an updated list with correct ISBN numbers.

K-2 Required Reading Reminder
The required Summer Reading book for Grades K-2 is not necessarily meant to be read independently by the student.  Parents should plan to enjoy reading the book with their child, helping instill a love and enjoyment of reading.

Students can choose books from the list of optional books which appeared in last week’s newsletter:

  • at their level to read independently or
  • above their level to be read with a parent

Summer Music Program

The Embers Summer Music Program is open to all 2nd – 4th Graders. In order to suit all growing musicians, Mr. Sadlowski will offer three tiers of instruction: 

  • Private Voice Lessons
  • Summer Intermediate Band Lessons
