Summer 2016 Reading Instructions 1-5

June 1, 2016 

Dear Parents/Guardians: 

The 2015-2016 academic year will end on Friday, June 3, 2016.  It is hard to believe another year has gone by, but we have many wonderful memories behind us. Through everyone’s hard work and dedication, our students strived for the best, and we are so very proud of each one’s academic and social achievements. 

Creating a habit of life-long reading is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children.  Establishing this habit early and nurturing it throughout their school years, is critical to their success in life.  We want students to pursue reading for enjoyment and encourage it through a wide selection of quality books.  

During summer we would like our students to read as many age appropriate books as they can. Below you will find this year’s required summer reading assignment:  

1. Students must read age-appropriate books. For your convenience, we have included a suggested reading list per grade level. 

2. After completing each book, students must fill out the attached reading log. 

3. The students should submit their reading log to their new English teacher Monday, August 22, 2016. 

4. As an in-class culminating project, the students will make a “chain of books” with their teachers. The chain will showcase how much each class read during the summer break, and will be displayed outside each classroom. We encourage students to try to achieve the longest chain for their class. 

As always, we also encourage each student to read books in Armenian. 

Treasure your reading time with your child(ren).
