St. Charles Elementary Summer
8th Annual Summer Brainbooster and Isabelle Gould Reading Program
Our children at St. Charles Elementary have worked hard this year to make gains in reading, math and writing as well as mastering other subjects at each grade level. It is proven through research that students can lose skills over the long summer months. It is expected that students will come back in the fall at the same level or an improved level of ability.
The summer Brainbooster and Isabelle Gould Summer Reading Program has been designed to keep your child’s brain active and engaged through the summer. The packet includes activity calendars, math fact practice ideas, a reading log and writing opportunities. Just a few activities per week can help your child maintain their level of achievement.
Please read the directions with each activity complete the activities with your child and have your child return the whole packet in the envelope back to school in the fall. Packets will not be accepted after Friday, September 9, 2011.
This is the 8th Annual Brainbooster and Summer Reading event! Each year staff members develop a theme and this year the theme is Read, Repeat, Return! Our focus will be on going GREEN and Recycling. As a matter of fact we are recycling by using leftover reading bags from previous years. The Brainbooster Bash will occur on Friday, September 16, 2011. It will be a whole afternoon of excitement with a theme that will involve Earth Friendly activities, food and games.
