Message from Ms. Rivera

Happy Summer! I hope you are doing well and enjoying this extra time with your kids. We miss them already!

May was an exciting month - field day, talent show, honoring the 2022 seniors, the 4th grade walk of honor, and so much more. In addition to these fun activities, our end of year assessments also showed excellent growth with our kids. Thank you for your support in helping them reach their full potential.

To keep helping, please encourage them to read every day, and I have included several activities that they can do below. You can also click here for resources. They must keep their skills sharp!

I hope to see you at the Reading Jubilee tomorrow, June 3, from 4:00-7:00 at the Magnolia Event Center (details below). Everything is free, and your kids will get free books while having lots of fun! Head to our website for updates, follow us on Twitter @CedricSmithElem, and contact me at if you have further questions.
