Summer is a great time to relax and read! It's important for students to continue reading throughout summer as studies show that reading and getting involved in other learning activities can help prevent "the summer slide".


1) Participate in the Weatherford Public Library Summer Reading Program for Teens (check their website closer to summer for more information: http://www.weatherfordtx.gov/142/Library)

2) Download the free Brytewave K-12 app and download the e-books and digital audio books available from the Tison Library -- students should get help from Mrs. Greer when setting up the Brytewave K-12 app for the first time.

3) Participate in the SYNC 2016 program! SYNC 2016 is a free summer audio book program for teens 13 and up. SYNC 2016 will give away 30 titles - two paired audio book downloads a week - starting on May 5th! To find out more information, including how to get weekly alerts, what books will be given away, and how to download them go to: http://audiobooksync.com/


Summer is quickly approaching and volleyball season will be here before you know it! We have lots of dates coming up for summer camps, open gyms, summer leagues, etc.

Attached is our parent letter outlining events offered per grade, our summer camp flyers for WISD camp June 6-8 and Team camp July 14-16, summer league information, and dates and times for open gym. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to email me! Go Roos!
