SPOTLIGHT


SUMMER READING BINGO
Do you know the “3 Rs” for summer? REST, RECHARGE, and READ! Summer should certainly be an enjoyable time for students and their families to play, relax, and make memories, but did you know that students might experience learning losses if they don’t read during the summer? This learning loss is often referred to as “the summer slide,” and it’s simple to prevent just by reading!

Our teachers have worked very hard this year to help our students to become more engaged readers, and we want them to continue to practice and enjoy reading over the summer. 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. We are encouraging ALL students to read for pleasure by selecting books of their own choice to read over the summer. To expand your reading horizons, please refer to the BINGO board on the back of this page. Students who choose to participate in playing “Summer Reading Bingo” by reading books and getting BINGO either horizontally, vertically or in the four corners will be eligible to participate in our summer reading celebration consisting of pizza, inflatables, music, popcorn and more. After the book has been read, pick out two or three powerful, funny, or interesting quotes from the book that might make someone else want to read it. Along with the quote, also provide the character who said it, author, and title. (See the examples listed at the bottom of this page.) Don’t forget to mark your spaces on the board and include the two or three quotes from each book read. The deadline for submitting your BINGO board will be Friday, August 25th. HAPPY READING!


INTRAMURALS
A little friendly competition usually ends up being a positive thing. At Seneca Middle School, the competition has just begun. As part of our PBIS program, we participate in an initiative - intramurals - which we have found that definitely excites and motivates our students throughout the year. Most people think of intramural activities as strictly related to sports, and while sports will be incorporated into the SMS intramural system, our program will include much more. Intramural competition at SMS will take place between the three grade levels, 6-8. The goal is for the grades to compete in all areas of student life: academics, attendance, discipline, athletics, music, art, workability skills, etc. Thus the various activities will include things such as flag football, basketball, MAP scores, Honor Roll and even such random items as the cleanliness of the hallways. For each individual activity, the grade level earning first place will earn 60 points towards their grade's point total. Those placing second will earn 40 points and third place will garner 20 points. The latest point totals may be found below. Periodic rewards will be granted to the grade level with the largest point total.

Check back often to see how your grade level is progressing!

6TH GRADE - 1820 points
7TH GRADE - 1510 points
8TH GRADE - 1850 points
