On September 24 Middlesex Elementary School (MES) recognized 50 students grades 1-5 for their efforts in completing the school’s summer math and reading programs.
The students’ goal in math was to complete 200 minutes of math practice from daily calendars for the months of June, July and August. Many of the activities involved word problems and math games. The students journaled about their math experiences.
The goal for the reading program was to read 20 books and visit a local library twice during the summer. The students returned their completed journals and reading logs to their homeroom teachers at the beginning of this school year.
A pizza party was given to the students to celebrate their work and dedication. The school will be sending information home with students at the end of this school year for the 2014 summer math and reading program.
MES principal Amy Stamm said, “We would like to continue to have our students participate next summer. The summer programs give parents and students the opportunity to work collaboratively, engaging in math and reading activities. Additionally, students who participate in these programs benefit by sharpening their skills for the upcoming school year.”
