Greetings Spangler Families,
Thank you for your hard work and dedication as partners in learning during the 2016 – 2017 school year. This year has been full of learning for our Spangler Spartans and staff.
Summer is a great time for your child to practice what he/she has learned throughout the school year. There is no better summer activity for your child than to read for pleasure. Not only will your child explore the joy of literature, but he/she will practice the many skills and strategies he/she has learned throughout the year. According to the research, students who do not read over the summer can lose as much as 22% of their reading level. That means two months of school progress. You can help combat this by encouraging your child to read and attend Spangler's Summer Reading program Tuesday-Thursday from 9-11:30 a.m. In addition, Milpitas Public Library has some amazing programs and books available, be sure you visit this summer.
For your convenience you also have access to iReady (login.i-ready.com) which is an online program that we use throughout the school year. It is designed to support student's skills in reading and math. Your child knows his/her user name and password, so be sure to log your child on for 30 minutes a few days each week. By following these suggestions, you will definitely continue with the momentum of learning!
It has been a pleasure educating your child this school year. Have a safe and relaxing summer. I look forward to seeing you on August 17, our first day of the 2017/2018 school year.
Thank you Spangler families and students for participating in our Summer Reading Program. Don't forget to turn in your Milpitas Library Reading Logs to our office on the first day of school, so you can get your free book.
