Summer Reading Inventive
Did you know that your child will have access to all of the computer programs they use at school all summer long including Raz-Kids (leveled books your child can read), Lexia Core5 (reading skills) and MobyMax (all subject areas). We sent home a reminder of how to access these programs at home. If you didn't receive a letter or have questions, please contact Mrs. Strader through email at email@example.com or through remind. Please set up a routine to make sure your child takes advantage of this opportunity all summer long. Students completing at least 300 minutes on Lexia or 3 levels in Raz-Kids or who complete at least on reading card through the summer reading program at the New Carlisle Library will get a prize in the fall and be on the announcements. We are so proud of the efforts of all of the kids this year and the progress they've made. We don't want to see all of their efforts go to waste. Read, read, read this summer!

PTO Officers Elected
Thanks to our wonderful PTO members and officers for all of their hard work this year as they organized and ran our apparel sale, book fair, cookie dough sale, skate parties, pool parties and the spring festival. Let's not forget about all the support they gave staff through treats and grants and their financial support of our elementary field trips, new equipment, and so much more! The PTO has generously contributed $5,000 to Park Layne Elementary to go towards the cost of a new Chromebook cart with 30 touch screen Chromebooks that will be used next year in Technology classes and in classrooms as well. The last PTO meeting was held earlier this month and officer elections for the 2018/2019 school year took place. Congratulations to the following parents; President Jordan Rose, Vice President Emmi Bilbrey, Treasurer Missy Carnes and Secretary Mandy Wills. Thanks to our outgoing officers for a wonderful year! President Brandy Triplett, Vice President Laura Sharbaugh, Secretary Hannah Gough, and treasurer Missy Carnes. Sign up for Remind alerts for PTO by following this link. Check out the PTO Facebook page for updates as well. Don't forget the pool party tonight at the New Carlisle Public Pool.

We Need Your Help - If you are cleaning out this summer, consider donating to Park Layne Elementary
- Extra Clothes for Kids Who Have Accidents at School. Sweatpants are best but any long pants - boys and girls - Sizes 4 - 10
- Items for Dressing Kids for the 100th Day of School - We keep extra costumes for our Fall Parade so thought we could do the same for the 100th Day for kids who forget. If you have any of the following you could donate, that would be great; old eye glasses we can pop the lenses out of, costume jewelry like pearls, sweaters for girls, suspenders or ties for boys, etc.
Gearing Up for Summer - Get your kids involved.
