Welcome Back and Summer Reading Challenge

Welcome back! It has been a great (but hot!) week here at NSES and we have been so happy that so many students have returned their Summer Reading Challenge forms. We love reading about all the great books kids got to curl up with this summer. As of right now, we have over 50 students who have completed the challenge. We will accept forms until Tuesday of next week and then we will set a date for our celebration so we can honor all the hard work everyone did.

If you are new to the blog, be sure to check out our past posts and our grade level information. Each grade level tab offers flash cards, word lists, and reading expectations so you can catch a glimpse of what your child will be learning this year. The “Parent” tab also offers great suggestions for websites and apps that can be used at home. As always, the best way to help your child become a reader is to make reading a part of your daily life. Let them see you read, talk about books, add reading to your nightly routine. The best way to become a better and more motivated reader is to read, read, read!

If you have any questions this year, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs.Mrs. Lafreniere (tlafreniere@nsps.us) or Mrs. Hawkins (bhawkins@nsps.us). We love to talk to parents and kids about reading and how you can help and we are looking forward to a great year!
