Dear Stadley Rough Families,

Summer can be a season full of good times and fun memories, but did you know that kids might experience learning losses when they don’t read during the summer? There’s actually a name for it. It’s called “the summer slide” (and that isn’t the one at the park). Reading is an important part of everyday life. Just because it is summer, students should not put their books away! The more our students read, the better readers they will be.

Studies show that children who read over the summer achieve greater scores on reading assessments in the fall than those who read only one or no books at all. Remember, no matter how old your children are everyone loves to be read to! We hope you and your family will read many stories this summer and reap all of the wonderful benefits that reading has to offer! This year the Kindness and Compassion Club has installed a “Book House” outside our school. It will be stocked with books for students to visit and pick up a book over the summer. During our Summer Reading Kickoff this year I challenged every student to read 10 books over the summer to keep their reading skills sharp. I hope our entire school can work hard and achieve the goal of 10 books. Have a great summer!

Enjoy the summer break!

Mr. Cerlich
