Mossy Head School

2015 Summer Learning Program

Who is the program for?

All Mossy Head School students

How long will it last?

June 5-August 9

Why is this program important?

Mossy Head School fosters a love for learning reading, writing, and math. We want our students to continue to grow academically, even while on summer vacation.

What do I do?

1)    Complete the “Summer Express” workbook (The workbook is designed for 10 weeks but you will only have 9 weeks to complete it. So, be sure to pace yourself this summer!) **This workbook was sent home in a "I Love Reading" backpack at the end of school.**

2)    Return your “Summer Express” Workbook to school by Friday, August 14, 2015. All students who return a completed workbook will earn a reward!

  

What other things are included in the backpack?

1)    Read your 5 NEW books and complete activities that go along with them

2)    Practice your math fluency with flashcards

3)    Practice your writing in your new journal

4)    Encourage your child to get on the computer and access our online resources: 

**Each website requires a student login and password. Student logins and passwords were sent home in the "I love reading" summer backpack.

Dear Parents,

It’s time for our SPRING BOOK FAIR! Summer is coming soon and we want our students to have plenty of books for summer reading! Our book fair will begin on Monday, May 11th and will end on Friday, May 15th. Students will be bringing home flyers with books that will be available that week to purchase. If you are sending money to school for students to purchase books, please remember to add 7.5% tax onto your order! Please make checks payable to Mossy Head School.

The book fair is also available online this year at http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/mossyheadschool. Books ordered online will be delivered to the school 7-10 business days after the book fair ends. Online ordering is available from May 5-17th, a couple of days earlier and later than the actual book fair! To make it fun and memorable for the students, we will have activities each day that coincide with National Library Week (see the back of this paper for more details).  I am looking forward to an awesome, fun-filled week!

Happy Reading,

Mrs. Heather Simmons
Media Specialist

MHS is ready for FSA

April 3, 2015

Mossy Head School's students are ready for the FSA! They have worked hard all year and it's time to SHINE and show all they've learned! We believe in you Mustangs and know you are going to do AWESOME!!!
Mossy Head School is proud to announce the Student of the Month for March is Makenzi Waldfogel. Makenzi is a 5th grade student in Mrs. Coleman's class. She shows her dedication to learning by always doing her best in school and being a great example for her peers. Congratulations, Makenzi!

Students in Mrs. Blanton’s 3rd grade classroom used Prezi to create a presentation for their class on air pressure and barometers. Students worked during their enrichment group to research and create the Prezi. Using Prezi in this Digital Lead Classroom at Mossy Head School is one way students incorporate technology in their everyday learning.
