Summer reading helps us SOAR!

Parents, help your child avoid reading regression this summer. Here are some ideas: Encourage your children to read books they enjoy for at least 30 minutes per day. Your child will likely be more engrossed in material they choose themselves than material that is forced on them. Provide incentives for reluctant readers. For example, if your child enjoys basketball, agree to take them to the local court if they do their “daily reading.” Make reading a social act. Establish a time during the day when all members of the family gather and read on their own, or take turns reading the same book aloud. Connect your reading to family outings. If you take your kids to an aquarium, consider reading a book about fish or the ocean with them later that day. The outing can help place the reading into a broader context.

Sanchez is an AVID Certified School! We received our certification in 2017. As a result, we continue to teach our third, fourth and fifth grade students the four components that will help them achieve academic success. Those components include Student Success Skills, Organizational Skills, WICOR Lessons and Partnerships within the school, our feeder schools, families and the community. Additionally, all students in kindergarten through fifth grade are learning about different universities and the mindset they will need to be successful lifelong students.
