  • Hello! We are approaching the finish line for Super Summer School! At this time, we want to thank our families for your support from home during this time of remote learning. We have had great attendance and participation from out students and we are pleased with their engagement and progress. It has been a great 6 weeks!

    We encourage your student to continue reading 20 minutes every day to keep those reading skills sharp. Writing a story, a letter to a family member, journal entries are also great things for your student to do to keep their writing skills sharp as well.

    Thank you SSS Families!

  • We had a wonderful first week of summer school with our students! We enjoyed getting to know our new classmates and teacher, meet our new principal, learn expectations for remote learning, and dove into our work on reading fluency, comprehension skills, and writing. We have a great group of eager learners and we look forward to the remaining 5 weeks with them all!

    A few things that would really be helpful:

    • Please make sure your student is logged on and ready to learn by 9am, including finished with breakfast.
    • We would like them in a quiet space, sitting up, with a place to write.
    • Please do not allow them to lay down in bed during instruction.
    • If you have headphones or a headset for your student to use, it may help with less distraction.
    • Please check on your student to encourage participation throughout class time.
    • Please have your student stay in one place during instruction.
    • Remind your student to be reading 20 minutes every day, and to write down their book titles on their NTPS Summer School Reading Log
