Summer Greetings!

Greetings Soaring Eagles! Hope this finds you enjoying every minute of your summer vacation. I have just returned from a visit to Chicago where I managed to “scoot” all through the city. Some of the highlights of my trip were touring Wrigley Field, visiting the Art Institute and the Museum of Science and Industry, the architectural tour, and riding the Ferris wheel. After reading The Devil and the White City, I wanted to see this city which is rich in culture and has such an intriguing history.

Speaking of reading, I have just read two books that were highly recommended by our Doyle Ambassadors. Among the Hidden is the first book in a series about children who are hidden from the world so they won’t be killed. How scary for those children! The other book I read was Stormbreaker which is the first book in the Alex Rider series. This is a book of espionage and intrigue. Although a bit contrived (not quite believable that a fourteen year old could be such a successful spy), the story reminds me of the work of adult author Robert Ludlum and I have now begun one of his books. Hope you are doing well with your Rock Out with a Book project. I would welcome hearing from you about the books you are reading.

Early August we will be opening the portal for you to find out who your new teacher will be. Make sure now that your parents have their activation keys and are able to log-in to the portal. Directions for getting onto the portal can be found on the upper right side of the Doyle website. http://cbsd.schoolwires.net/doyle

All of your well wishes paid off! I am now able to walk without my scooter. Thank you for your thoughtful concern. I miss you!

Stay cool ~ Read in the pool! Mrs. Salvesen
