Centre Avenue School
Dear Centre Avenue Families,
What a year it has been!!! I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the Centre Avenue Community for all your support this school year. We have endured so much but have tackled every challenge with stride. I am so proud of the work of our students, with this hard work evidenced with many smiles on the last day of school. Those smiles provided everyone here at Centre that our dedication this school year has provided happiness to the students that walked these halls.
To support your children over the summer we have attached an optional Literacy/Math calendar to all student report cards. Each day is a fun activity that is literacy or math based that your child could do on their own or with you. Also, please continue to read with your child over the summer. Reading provides our children with opportunities to travel the world in the safety of our own homes. Here are some great ideas to promote reading over the summer as well as keep track of all the great books your family has read.
● Make a Quilt As you finish a book, suggest that your child draw a picture showing their favorite part. They can tape the pages together and hang the growing “quilt” on their bedroom wall.
● Create a Passport Have your child use a small notebook as a reading passport. They could draw a “stamp” and write a short book review on each page.
● Craft a Paper Chain Encourage your child to write the title and author of each book on a strip of paper, loop the strips together, and snake the chain around the house.
Keep a look out for emails over the summer with fun summer read alouds as well dates in late August for families to virtually meet up with me to discuss information for the upcoming school year.
Have fun on your summer adventures and enjoy the sun!
