Dear Trails West Families,
Did you know that when kids don’t read over the summer they
can fall behind when they head back to school? These learning losses are
often called the “Summer Slide,” and our school has made it a priority to keep
our students’ skills sharp by encouraging them to read all summer long.
This year we will be providing students with a reading log to track their
summer reading. Students who bring back completed reading logs, summer
work given by their current teacher, or Summer Bridges Activity Books, will
earn an ice cream party for the beginning of the year. Reading logs will be
sent home with students and will also be available online. If you did not
have an opportunity to order a Summer Bridges book they can be purchased at
Beyond the Blackboard located in Southlands Mall.
