2021-22 Communications & Resources


July 6, 2021

Dear Families,

Summer is a great time for your child to practice what he/she has learned throughout the school year, especially after this past year. There is no better activity for your child than to engage in reading for enjoyment. Not only will your child discover the joy of being lost in a book, he/she will practice the many skills and strategies he/she has learned all year.

The “Summer Slide,” as educators refer to it, is a major challenge when starting off the new school year. However, students who read and practice skills over the summer do return to school ready to continue their learning with little or no learning loss.

Here is a link to our Summer Resources Folder by grade level. Your student should use the information from the grade they were in this PAST school year, as this is a review.

Below this letter is a copy of the Reading Log as well as a chart and leveled lists to help your child find books of interest. No need to stick to this list; they are offered as suggestions for your child to continue reading at his/her appropriate level! For our students, our Summer Reading is meant to be enjoyable! We do not want students to have to struggle; we want reading to be fun and relaxing. The enclosed resources have the summer reading program description. Reading is an important and an easy way for students to assure their general readiness for the next grade, and the only requirement is to complete the Reading Log and bring it to your child’s teacher! This will serve as a way to celebrate all the magnificent summer reading accomplished and launch engaging discussions.

Additional subject areas, such as specific math placement-derived review activities, are also included on IXL and teacher-provided links as a review of those areas where we see some students struggle as they start the next grade. This is meant to be a review guide with examples of optional activities your child can work on during the summer to review and come in prepared for the next grade.
To log into IXL, please use the link specific to TFS: https://www.ixl.com/signin/franciscan.

We hope you have a wonderful summer!

Sincerely,
Mike Watson
Principal at The Franciscan School
