Summer Math Books

The school highly recommends that all students who are entering grades 1-8 complete the Summer Math book. Regular math skill practice will help your child(ren)maintain the growth that was accomplished throughout the year and help them start the next year on a strong foundation. Summer Math books are $15.00. Homeroom teachers will pass out the summer math books the last week of school. You may come into the school office to pay for the Summer Math book or send in payment with you child. Please contact the school office with any questions.

Completed books will be turned in on the first day of school in the fall. Questions regarding math books may be directed to your child’s teacher.

Middle School Reading Celebration: Friday, May 10 at 10:15am
Thanks to those who’ve donated to the Middle School Reading celebration! We could still use volunteers to help that morning and we are still accepting donations if you have books, gift cards or things you think middle schoolers would enjoy. Please contact Mrs. Zanarini at azanarini@stvincents-school.org if you’d like to help or if you have any questions.

Elementary School End-of-Year Reading Celebration: Monday, May 20 at 2:15pm
Students who have cumulatively logged more than 4000 minutes this year are invited to a special Harry Potter themed reading party. Volunteers are needed to help. Please email Mrs. Zanarini if you would be available to help that afternoon at azanarini@stvincents-school.org. We will be celebrating the reading accomplishments of all those students who have not logged more than 4000 minutes in library class time during the week of May 13-16.

Scholastic BOGO Summer Reading Book Fair: Saturday, May 18 — 9am-1pm, Monday, May 20 — 8am-7:30pm
In conjunction with the Used Uniform Sale, we will be having a Buy One, Get One Free Book Fair from Scholastic so that kids can stock up on books for the summer! The library and school will receive no profit from this fair, but would like to offer the opportunity for kids to choose fun and affordable books for summer reading.

Thanks,
Anna
