A Note From The Superintendent's Desk -
Summer is right around the corner, and keeping children reading throughout the summer is a goal that we must all try to accomplish. As you may know, one review of the impact of summer reading found that children can lose up to 60 percent of their skills during a two-month vacation. Reading during the summer months, however, can sustain those gains and ensure students are better prepared when they return to school in the fall.
Mt. Olive School District AR program will continue to run throughout the summer. Students will be able to take tests. Access to books and/or computers to take tests will be available at the Mt. Olive Public Library.
I also wanted to let you know that we are promoting the use of the 'Find-a-Book' website at http://lexile.com/findabook as a resource toward that effort.
The 'Find-a-Book' site uses a student's Lexile score to provide quick and easy access to a list of books that will match a child's reading level. Students can also search by their grade level and interests for books that appeal to them. The site allows users to narrow their search by investigating more than two dozen categories, from adventure and art to travel and true crime. Book lists can be further refined by award-winning authors.
A few moments discussing or visiting this website with your child can lead to increased summer reading and learning. Most importantly, a student's positive experience with reading can lead to lifelong habits of reading for pleasure and for learning.
