Principal's Message - Keep Learning

Ninety Days of Summer - Keep Learning.

This week our students will receive workbooks to support their summer learning. With minimal guidance students should be able to complete a day's lesson in 15 minutes. Parents can then review their child's work and set new learning goals.

Covid has created obstacles including many missed learning opportunities. Take advantage of these next months to stay academically strong if not advance some subject areas. Summer is a wonderful time but should not come at an academic cost. Daily learning keeps academic skills sharp and can get many students over their learning humps.

After the last day of school, the next time I see folks may be at the end of July - National Night Out. The fair is put on by North Haven Communities and has lots of booths. Bring your completed workbooks to the Arctic Light table and pick-up your prize.

I'll be checking my email all summer. Send me a message if you have a question or concern.

Thank you for being our partners in your child's education.

Do Good Work, Be a Friend, Every Day.

Summer Academic Workbooks

  • Wednesday, we will give each student a workbook to keep their academic skills sharp over the summer.
  • The workbook is broken into three 20-daily lessons (3 months worth).
  • The simplest thing to do is have your student start at Day 1 and finish a day's lesson at each sitting: about 15 minutes.
  • Review your child's work and set new work goals each day.
  • At the back of the book are answers, certificates, flashcards and stickers to make the learning fun.
  • Completed workbooks can be turned in next year for prizes

Funny Monday

My ability to make a fire using only stone, stick and twigs

Is matchless.

Barbecues are a great way to ketchup with friends.

Barbecues are the best, you've really got to relish the moments.
